Sudip admitted to Jharpara Jail Hospital due to deteriorating health
Trinamool Congress MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay was taken to a hospital on account deteriorating health early on Friday.
Following a court order, the MP from Kolkata Uttar was taken to Jharpara Jail Hospital in Odisha.
Doctors have kept Bandyopadhyay under observation. The hospital authorities said that he has no major health problem.
“He has been kept under observation. There are no major health problems detected,” said Jharpara Jail Superintendent Rabindra Nath Swain.
Meanwhile, the MP’s wife Nayana pleaded before the Court to have her ailing husband shifted to a proper hospital.
She also said that her husband’s health condition was deteriorating.
The Central Bureau of Investigation was reportedly informed about the deteriorating health condition of Trinamool MP, but they allegedly paid no heed to it.
A special CBI court in Bhubaneswar on Thursday had sent Bandyopadhyay to judicial custody for 14 days, after rejecting his bail petition.
It may be recalled that CBI have arrested Bandyopadhyay in the Rose Valley case. The arrest came soon after another party MP Tapas Paul was charged and arrested in the same case.
Bandyopadhyay alleged that it was a case of political vendetta by the Bharatiya Janata Party-led central government.
Trinamool Congress is leading the anti-demonetisation movement across the country and the BJP-led Centre is trying to suppress the movement by arresting Trinamool leaders, Bandyopadhyay had earlier alleged. He said that CBI is being used for political purposes.
