Bhujbal may be discharged from hospital in 2-3 days
Former Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal, admitted to the ICU of state-run St George Hospital here, after he complained of toothache, will be discharged in 2-3 days.
The veteran Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader was arrested in a money-laundering by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) about a month ago.
“Bhujbal was shifted from the ICU to the normal ward this morning after his reports were found to be normal. But we will conduct a ‘holter monitoring’ test, after which we will take final call (about discharging). He is expected to be discharged in two-three days,” head of medicine unit at the hospital Dr Rohan Sequira said.
Bhujbal’s blood pressure was normal and he was under constant monitoring of a team of doctors from St George and JJ Hospitals, Dr Sequira said.
“A team of cardiologists from the JJ Hospital had come to examine him. When he was brought to the hospital, his blood pressure was 180/120, way beyond the normal 120/90,” he said.
A probe into Bhujbal’s admission to St George instead of the mandated JJ Hospital (also govt-run) has revealed that a doctor at the Arthur Road Jail manipulated papers to help the jailed leader.
