Gurgaon, May 2: The Gurgaon Police, soon after filing a case under the SC/ST Act in connection with the suicide of Meghalaya CM's niece Dana M. Sangma, have sent her answersheet to the forensic lab for examination.

Dana committed suicide in her room at Amity University's Pachgaon (Manesar) campus earlier this week after she was expelled for cheating in an exam.

"Dana's answersheet has been sent to FSL Madhuban to clarify who wrote what on it and check for other details," a Gurgaon policeman said.

The National Commission for Women has also constituted a four-member team for an independent inquiry into the incident.

Meghalaya CM Mukul Sangma will arrive in the Capital on Saturday and meet government officials to take up the issue of discrimination against people from the North-East in Delhi and NCR. He will also reportedly take up the suicide case with the National Commission for Scheduled Caste and Tribes.

"This unfortunate incident has not happened in isolation. Such incidents are triggered because of the psyche of people who label people from the North-Eastern states as inferior.

Whenever I interact with students from these states studying in Delhi, they complain of racial discrimination," Sangma said over phone.

According to the CM, the invigilator had noted that Dana's mobile phone was found in "switched on" mode in her pocket. "It does not infer that she was cheating. Besides, if she was thrown out of class just for this, then something more must have happened to force her to commit suicide," he said.

Amity University, meanwhile, clarified in a detailed statement that Dana was surfing the internet during the exam.

The administration officials said some personal reason might have forced Dana to take the extreme step.

According to the statement, the invigilator took away Dana's paper and asked her to leave the examination hall.
