Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and former Delhi minister Satyendar Jain, who is undergoing treatment at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash (LNJP) Hospital in New Delhi, is bleeding profusely due to a head injury. The clot had settled. However, his condition is stable, sources told news agency PTI on Friday.
A four-member medical board comprising senior doctors from LNJP Hospital, neurologists from GB Pant Hospital besides specialists in critical care has been constituted to treat Jain, who was admitted to the hospital on Thursday.
Several tests, including MRI, were conducted to check Jain’s medical condition and the reports are awaited, PTI quoted sources as saying.
The former Delhi minister is currently on intravenous fluids.
Meanwhile, Jain was granted interim bail for six weeks by the Supreme Court on medical grounds. The court said in its order that every citizen has the right to get treatment of his choice in a private hospital at his own expense.
Jain was admitted to the ICU in Tihar Jail after he fainted due to dizziness. The AAP leader was seen on oxygen support after the incident.
Jain was first admitted to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital and later shifted to Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) Hospital due to breathing problems.
AAP sources said the former Delhi minister was admitted to the ICU of LNJP hospital and was “critically ill”.
This is the second time in a week that the former minister has been taken to the hospital. Jain has been in Tihar Jail since his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case in May last year.
On Thursday, a senior doctor of the hospital said, “Jain has some spinal problem. Earlier also he was brought to LNJP Hospital for treatment.”
