Bhubaneswar: Chilika MLA Prasanta Jagadev has been shifted to Capital Hospital in Bhubaneswar from Banapur sub-jail as his health condition deteriorated late on Monday night.
Reportedly, the arrested MLA suffered from high blood pressure, diabetes, dizziness, and chest pain last night and he was rushed for immediate medical treatment.
Earlier on March 23, Jagdev was arrested after recovering from his injuries at a private hospital in Bhubaneswar.
Following this, he was presented before the Bhubaneswar SDJM Court and the court granted the police a transit remand for the legislator.
Thereafter, he was taken to Banapur in an ambulance amid strict security and was produced before the Banapur JMFC Court.
Later, the court rejected his bail plea following which he was sent to Banpur sub-jail.
It is to be noted here that more than 20 people including six-seven cops, journalists, and women were injured after they were run over by the legislator on March 12. Later, the angry mob attacked the MLA brutally and vandalized his four-wheeler.
