Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi late on Friday night reached the Hyderabad Central University (HCU) and participated in a candle light march by the students to mark the birth anniversary of Rohith Vemula, Dalit scholar who committed suicide two weeks ago.

Rahul, who arrived here at 12.10 am, spoke to the agitating students, who are on a hunger strike demanding action against Vice Chancellor P Appa Rao and others responsible for Rohith's suicide.

A member of joint action committee for social justice (University of Hyderabad) said that Rahul will sit on hunger strike on Saturday morning to press for student's demands.
