Dalit scholar's death: Rohith Vemula's mother hospitalised after chest pain

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 14 February 2017, 5:29 IST

University of Hyderabad scholar Rohith Vemula's mother was admitted to the hospital on Sunday after she complained of chest pain. Rohith, a Dalit PhD scholar, was found hanging at the Central University's hostel room on January 17. Students in Hyderabad University have alleged that circumstances forced him to commit suicide. Some students believe that a letter written last year by Union Minister for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya to the HRD Minister Smriti Irani led to a sequence of events ending in the suicide of PhD scholar Rohith Vemula.

Rohith's mother was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Gachibowli Continetal hospital here.

Various student groups have been protesting over the suicide of Rohith since last week.

Rohit was among the five research scholars who were suspended by Hyderabad Central University (HCU) in August last year and also one of the accused in the case of assault on an ABVP student leader.
