CHENNAI: Decrying discrimination prevailing at institutions of higher education, political parties in Tamil Nadu sought a CBI probe into the alleged suicide by JNU research scholar Muthukrishnan, hailing from Salem district.

DMK working president MK Stalin expressed shock over the alleged suicide of the Dalit researcher and conveyed his condolences to the bereaved family. The statement of Delhi police that Muthukrishnan was under depression over the last few days was not acceptable, he said.

“The Centre must hand over investigation relating to death of Muthukrishnan and Saravanan to CBI and find out the culprits,” he said in  a statement here.

Stalin asked Delhi police not to ignore the messages Muthukrishnan had posted in his Facebook account on  inequality in JNU.
