At least two students attached to the Sabaragamuwa University were hospitalised today after they had launched a fast in protest over some demands yesterday.
Several students had staged a protest since Tuesday calling on the authorities to address their issues.
However as there was no solution to their concerns, a group of students began a fast yesterday.
As a result of the fast, two students fell very sick and were admitted to hospital today.
Protests intensified this morning after the two students were taken to hospital. (Colombo Gazette)
