Rajiv Goswami dead

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, FEB. 24. The former Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) president, Rajiv Goswami, who set himself ablaze during the anti-Mandal agitation in 1990, died in a city hospital here today.

Mr. Goswami had attempted self-immolation in the Deshbandhu College in South Delhi when the anti-Mandal agitation was at its peak, sparking off a series of self-immolations by students. Subsequently, he was inducted into students' politics and became the DUSU president, contesting on a National Students' Union of India ticket. Mr. Goswami later gave up active politics due to health problems and established his own business. He was always in and out of hospitals following severe health problems.
