Undergraduate students at the All India Institute for Medical Sciences (AIIMS) demanded a judicial inquiry into the alleged suicide by the first-year student in his hostel room earlier this month.

“Anil’s death is not the first in the institute. Two years ago, Balmukund Bharti, a final-year student of the reserved category committed suicide. We wish to prevent such episodes in future and that is why we want a judicial inquiry,” said Dr Mahendra Meena, convenor of the Students Action Committee.

On March 3, Anil Meena (22), from Baran district in Rajasthan, was found hanging by his friends in his hostel room.

Meanwhile, the students have decided to take out a candlelight march on Thursday evening inside the AIIMS campus.
