New Delhi: One of the two men on hunger strike demanding death for the culprits in the Delhi gang rape case here had to hospitalised yesterday due to failing health, his brother said.
Rajesh Gangwar, 45, from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, came to Delhi on December 24. His hunger strike entered its 14th day yesterday, when he was taken to nearby Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in the evening.
“He was feeling very weak and the cold weather was taking its toll as well. He did not want to go and was determined to stay here, but he needed help immediately,” his brother Rakesh said.
Gangwar was agitating along with Babu Singh, 40, a farmer from Farrukhabad, also in Uttar Pradesh, who is on day nine of his fast.
Singh now holds fort at the historic Jantar Mantar observatory in the heart of the capital.
“I will continue the hunger strike until proper punishment is meted out to those involved in the crime. I am not giving up that easily,” Singh said. IANS
