Umar Khalid ends hunger strikes after 11-days, rushed to hospital

New Delhi: Jawaharlal Nehru University student Umar Khalid, who was on a hunger strike for the last 11 days, was on Monday morning taken to AIIMS after there was a significant dip in his sugar, sodiam and potassium level. 

Khalid, along with 25 other JNU students were protesting against the JNU committee's decision of slapping a fine on him and others for participating in pro-Afzal event in the campus on February 9. 

The university management meted out varying degrees of punishment to students for their role in a February 9 event to commemorate parliament attack convict Afzal Guru's third death anniversary.

Some of the students, penalized for indiscipline and raising "objectionable" slogans, were rusticated. Kanhaiya Kumar was fined Rs 10,000.

The punishment came two months after Kanhaiya Kumar, Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya were jailed and then released for taking part in the event.

Umar Khalid, who was accused of organising the event and inviting several outsiders for raising anti-India slogans on the night of February 9, was rusticated by the university for one semester.
