The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry sent a two-member team to look into the suicide of Dalit research scholar Rohith in Hyderabad even as the Congress demanded the sacking of Union Minister for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya after he was booked in the case for abetment to suicide.

The HRD team, comprising Officer on Special Duty (OSD) in the Ministry, Shakila T Shamsu, and Deputy Secretary Surat Singh, will look into the matter and submit its report to the Ministry.
