Now twelve of the 24 students of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) on an indefinite hunger strike since Wednesday have been hospitalised till Friday.
The 24 students embarked on fast-unto-death on Wednesday afternoon, demanding the resignation of the university's Vice-Chancellor.
In the past two days, most of the protesting students have fallen sick, UNB has learnt.
While Twelve of them have been hospitalised after their blood sugar levels dropped, remaining all were being given intravenous saline at the venue. One more left the venue in the early hours of Friday as his relative fell sick.
