Sharma, who is joint secretary of the JNUSU, was taken to the Safdarjung Hospital on Monday afternoon after his health deteriorated during a hunger strike.

He and some Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members are on an indefinite hunger strike against a fine of Rs.10,000 imposed on Sharma by a high-level committee, on charges of obstructing traffic on the campus during the February 9 event.

Apart from the ABVP members, several other JNUSU leaders, including Kanhaiya Kumar, are also on a hunger strike over the punishment given to them over the February 9 issue.
