New Delhi, May 5 :The condition of JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar, who was admitted to AIIMS on Thursday afternoon following “mild dehydration” during his ongoing hunger strike, was stable, doctors said.
According to the hospital authorities, Kanhaiya Kumar was undergoing necessary treatment at the emergency department.
“There is a possibility of internal damage to (his) organs,” he said.
“The health of the rest of the students is also deteriorating fast. All students have lost around 4-6 kg of weight,” Khalid told IANS.
He said the JNU administration has not moved even after eight days of the “indefinite hunger strike”.
Khalid said the ketone level of other students was also dangerously high, meaning their bodies had started burning fats for energy as they have not eaten anything for eight days.
On Wednesday, 170 JNU teachers joined the protesting students on a day’s hunger strike in solidarity.
