Rohith Vemula suicide: Mother Radhika Vemula admitted in ICU

Hyderabad: Radhika Vemula, the mother of Rohith Vemula, was on Sunday night shifted to a hospital in view of her health conditions.

Rohith, a Dalit research scholar, had allegedly committed suicide on the Hyderabad Central University (HCU) campus on January 17 after he, along with four others, was suspended last year in connection with an attack on an Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) leader.

 

Rohith's brother Raja told PTI that Radhika was shifted from the protest camp on the campus on Sunday night and taken to a private hospital after she complained of "chest pain...heart pain". She is currently in ICU.

 

On Saturday, seven students who were on hunger strike in the Hyderabad university for the last four days were forcibly shifted to hospital.
