Mumbai Cops Meet Parents Of IIT Bombay Student Who Died By Suicide

An official claimed that Mumbai police travelled to Gujarat on Thursday to interview the parents of Darshan Solanki, an IIT Bombay student who died purportedly by suicide on campus.

An official claimed that a three-person team from the Powai police, which is in charge of the area where the prestigious institute is located, arrived at Solanki’s residence in Maninagar in Ahmedabad city in the morning. According to Solanki’s family, who suspected foul play in his death, he was subjected to discrimination at the IIT B since he belonged to a Scheduled Caste community.

The team will interview Solanki’s mother, father, and other family members as part of their investigation. According to the official, it will record its parents’ statements once again.

The official claimed that shortly after learning about Solanki’s apparent suicide, his parents travelled to Mumbai. According to the official, they had not expressed any doubt about their son’s death or voiced any opposition to the investigation in their initial remarks.

Solanki (18), a first-year student of BTech (chemical), died allegedly after jumping off the seventh floor of a hostel building on the Powai campus of the IIT on Sunday (Feb 12).

According to a student organisation at IIT B, Solanki experienced caste-based discrimination.
On Tuesday, the IIT Bombay administration refuted claims of caste prejudice at the school and stated that early feedback from the victim’s acquaintances revealed there was no discrimination.

As part of their investigation into the matter, the Mumbai police said on Wednesday that they had begun recording the testimony of Solanki’s fellow inmates.
