According to reports, Rohilla’s family says the reason for his low attendance was a fractured leg. “The university administration did not acknowledge his pleas,” Mehak, Sushant Rohilla’s sister quoted in a report. While he left a suicide note, it does not explain the reason for taking his life.

But in an email written to the Amity founder Dr Ashok Chauhan on May 11, the student wrote, “I will not be able to mentally survive this if I am debarred”.
