Bhubaneswar: The student wing of the Naba Nirman Krushak Sanghathan (NNKS) has called for Odisha Bandh on July 19 demanding proper probe into the death of Ruchika Mohanty, who was a student of BJB Autonomous College here.
Mohanty committed suicide 11 days back in a hostel room in BJB College campus, allegedly due to ragging by her seniors. NNKS Convener Akhaya Kumar has called upon people to make the ‘Odisha Bandh’ successful.
Mohanty’s mother has been protesting at Lower PMG Square seeking justice for her daughter. She withdrew from the strike after Kumar intervened and committed his support.
“We will request people of the Twin City and all across Odisha to support us in seeking justice for Ruchika Mohanty,” said Kumar. On the other hand, the Mohanty’s mother has demanded a CBI probe into the death of the girl.
