An Akhila Bharath Vidhyarthi Parishat member ended life in Sringeri after a dispute with NSUI
A program to pay tribute to Indian soldiers had been organized recently at the college under the initiative of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). Well-known orator, Chakravarthi Soolibele was supposed to arrived at Sringeri for a programme. However, NSUI members had held a press meet stating that Soolibele should not be allowed to hold programme in Sringeri, due to which a tiff broke out between members of two organisation. After the quarrel cases were booked against four members of ABVP and Abhishek happened to be one of them.
But after protest from NSUI, although the programme was held, Sulibele did not attend it.
This development had given rise to minor friction between activists of NSUI and ABVP. A case had also been registered against ABVP activists, Abhishek, Anirudh, Kaushik, and Kartik Arjun, students of the college.
It is said that Abhishek was overwhelmed by the fact that his name was mentioned in the case and hence ended his life. In his death note, Abhishek has allegedly mentioned the same incident and said that he was killing himself as a police case against him would spoil his life. Abhishek’s body was found hanging from a tree in a forest area near his home. A case stands registered against some NSUI activists, college principal, and governing council of the college.
