Bhujbal complains of uneasiness, doctors sent to ED office

A team of doctors from the government-run JJ Hospital was on Wednesday sent to the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) office here to examine Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Chhagan Bhujbal after he complained of uneasiness.

The ED had arrested the former Maharashtra PWD minister in a money-laundering case on March 14. A court remanded Bhujbal in ED’s custody till March 17 on Tuesday. “We have sent a team of doctors to the ED office to examine Bhujbal after he complained of uneasiness,” dean of J J Hospital Dr TP Lahane said.

Meanwhile, an ED source said Bhujbal denied he had any knowledge about the Maharashtra Sadan scam even today.

“Today we confronted him with statements given by some of the persons (witnesses). However he denied everything,” said an ED official.

Bhujbal is accused of taking kickbacks in awarding of contract for Maharashtra Sadan, the state guest house in Delhi. 

The ED had told the court that his arrest was necessary as he was not cooperating with the probe.

He would be produced in the court on Thursday.
