Irani’s statements were praised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who congratulated her on Twitter.

However, Rohith's family said her claim that "nobody allowed a doctor near his body" was a set of "absolute lies".
The Dalit student had committed suicide on January 17, days after he was banned from entering certain areas in the college campus.
