Business News/ News / India/  Satyendar Jain on oxygen support, shifted to LNJP hospital: AAP

Former Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain was admitted to the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital after he slipped in the bathroom at Tihar Jail and got minor injuries, the officials said on Thursday.

In an official statement, the prison official said, “This morning around 6 am, under trial prisoner (UTP) Dr Satendra Jain slipped and fell in the bathroom of the Medical Inspection (MI) room of the hospital of Central Jail (CJ-7), where he was kept under observation for general weakness."

They added that the former minister was examined by doctors and his vital organs were found to be normal. “He was further referred to DDU Hospital as he complained about back, left leg and shoulder pain."

However, Jain has now been shifted to the ICU of LNJP Hospital in Delhi. Currently, he is on oxygen support, said AAP sources as quoted by ANI.

Earlier on Monday, the former AAP minister Jain was taken to Safdarjung Hospital after he complained of health issues. The party claimed that Jain suffers from acute lumbar pain, causing vertigo and chronic lower back pain due to a slipped disc.

A recent MRI conducted on May 3 demonstrates degeneration in all intervertebral discs of Satyendar Jain leading the doctors to advise urgent spinal/vertebral surgery and proper post-operative care, read the AAP statement, ANI reported.

However, the AAP said, Jain has been placed as No 416 on a waiting list by Jail authorities and is expected to be able to undergo the surgery only after a further five months.

Jain on May 15 had moved a plea in the Supreme Court, seeking bail in the alleged money laundering case against him. He has challenged the Delhi High Court's order dismissing his bail plea in the alleged case.

Jain was arrested on May 30, 2022, under sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) by Enforcement Directorate and is presently in Judicial Custody in the case.

The ED case is based on a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) complaint registered on the allegation that Satyender Jain had acquired movable properties in the name of various persons from February 14, 2015, to May 31, 2017, which he could not satisfactorily account for.
