VIJAYAWADA: The four-member committee, appointed by the government to inquire into the death of B Arch student M Rishiteswari in Acharya Nagarjuna University, continued its inquiry on the second day on Thursday.

Rishiteswari’s parents, who along with students union leaders and representatives had deposed before the committee, sought justice to their child. Both the parents as well as the student leaders felt the it was not right on the part of the government to have the committee conduct the inquiry after closing the university. “What do they want to achieve by doing such thing? More students can throw light on what had happened, if they are present in the university. It is better for the government to conduct a judicial probe into my daughter’s death,” Rishtieswari’s father M Muralikrishna told newsmen after deposing before the committee. 

He opined that the system itself in the university was wrong and there was no anti-ragging mechanism in place.
