The mother of Rohith Vemula, a Dalit research scholar who allegedly committed suicide on the Hyderabad Central University (HCU) campus on January 17, was tonight shifted to a hospital after she complained of ill health.

Radhika (Rohith's mother) was shifted from the protest camp on the campus tonight and taken to a private hospital after she complained of chest pain and she is in ICU, Rohith's brother Raja told PTI.

Rohith, one of the five research scholars suspended last year in connection with an attack on a ABVP leader, had allegedly hanged himself in a hostel room on the varsity campus last Sunday.
