"The school powers did a volte-face and sent him an email, one month after the exam, expressing that he had been kept because of short participation and he ought to apply for readmission in the same semester. He was under parcel of weight following," Mehak Rohilla, the perished's sister said.

Rohilla's kinfolk and companions assembled outside the graduate school premises and organized a dissent on Tuesday, requesting a test into the episode. Amity powers, nonetheless, denied having any part in Rohilla's passing and communicated despondency over the occurrence. "Amity Law School, Delhi, is associated to Guru Gobind Singh IP University.
