Hyderabad: University of Hyderabad scholar Rohith Vemula’s mother was admitted to the hospital on Sunday after she complained of chest pain.

She 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.

Rohith Vemula, a Dalit PhD scholar, was found hanging at the Central University’s hostel room on January 17.

He 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.
