Umar Khalid and 2 other students ended their fast on Monday succumbing to their worsening health conditions on the 11th day of their hunger strike against the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration.
The university had taken action against 21 students in connection with the February 9 Afzal Guru event row.
Vice-chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar on Monday set up a committee to discuss the “issues” of the agitating students, making a fresh appeal to them to call off their strike and come for a dialogue, in view of the rising temperature and worsening health conditions of agitators.
He also urged the teachers to “immediately” end their relay hunger strike after Umarwas taken to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in a serious condition. His condition had begun deteriorating since Sunday night with fall in blood sugar level and ketone.
