Delhi Ex Minister Satyendar Jain in ICU: Party Sources

NEW DELHI, May 25: AAP leader and former Delhi minister Satyendar Jain, who has been in Tihar Jail since May last year, was “admitted in an ICU” at a leading Government hospital here on Thursday, after he collapsed at the prison due to dizziness, party sources said.
Earlier in the day, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had said Jain was first admitted to the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Hospital, and later, shifted to the Lok Nayak Jayaprakash (LNJP) Hospital due to breathing problems.
Jain has been in prison since his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with a money laundering case in May last year.
At the LNJP Hospital, Jain has been shifted to “an ICU”, AAP sources said, adding that he is “critically ill”. The LNJP Hospital is the largest hospital under the Delhi government.
He (Jain) was brought to the emergency department of the LNJP Hospital earlier in the day and doctors examined him, a senior doctor at the city government-run hospital said on the condition of anonymity.
“Jain has some spinal issues, and in the past too, he has been brought to LNJP Hospital to undergo treatment for it,” he said.
He collapsed due to dizziness in a bathroom of the Tihar Jail. Even before this, Jain had fallen in the bathroom and had a serious spinal injury, the AAP said.
Wishing speedy recovery to Jain, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, “May God give him the strength to fight against these adverse circumstances.” (PTI)
