Jailed AAP leader and former Delhi minister Satyendar Jain was on Monday examined by doctors at the Safdarjung Hospital here for a spine problem.
Lodged at Delhi’s Tihar Jail since his arrest in connection with a money laundering case last year, Jain was taken to the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Hospital on Saturday but as he wanted a second opinion, he was taken to the Safdarjung Hospital.
“Jain visited the neurosurgery OPD in the morning and after being examined by the doctors there, he left. He was accompanied by police, said a source.
Jain was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on May 31, 2022, in connection with a money laundering case. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wished his former cabinet colleague a speedy recovery.
“I pray to god for his better health. The people of Delhi are watching the arrogance and atrocities of the BJP. Even god will not forgive these oppressors. In this struggle, the people are with us and god is by our side. We are followers of Bhagat Singh and our fight against oppression, injustice and dictatorship will continue,” he tweeted in Hindi.
