PTI In this Spetember 6, 2011 photo Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh is taken to Tihar Jail in New Delhi after he was denied bail in the cash-for-vote case.

The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) told a court here on Wednesday that Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh, now under judicial custody in the cash-for-votes case, was hospitalised for complications related to his kidney transplant, diarrhoea, urinary tract infection, diabetes, dehydration and hypothyroid hypertension.

The AIIMS said it also sought a psychiatry consultation because of Mr. Singh's “anxiety and restlessness.”

A report from the AIIMS' Nephrology Department said his creatinine level was above normal and for a kidney transplant patient, this required hospitalisation. Further, his heart beat rate was exceeding the normal range, it noted.

“He continues to have vomiting and diarrhoea for which the gastroenterologist has suggested automatic function tests and endoscopy with mucosal biopsy,” the AIIMS said.

Meanwhile, a report from the Tihar Jail to the court on the conditions that necessitated Mr. Singh's hospitalisation on September 12 said that he was examined by five-member team of super-specialists and it recommended that the patient required care at an “institute, where all specialties and super-specialties care are available.”
