This is likely to ignite a new controversy in the entire matter. However, top officials in the HRD Ministry, when contacted, remained mum on the development.

Higher Education Secretary VS Oberoi refused to either confirm or deny that the report has been submitted. HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar, when contacted, said that the report has not reached him yet.

Vemula had committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling of a hostel room in the university.

The suicide by Vemula had triggered a huge political storm with opposition parties launching a massive attack on the Modi government over the issue.

Before his death, he complained of harassment by the university officials who were allegedly backed by Union ministers. The Commission report, it was learnt, has, however, not put the blame on the senior university officials.
