PDP leader and Bangalore serial blast accused Abdul Nasir Maudany has been shifted to Manipal Hospital for an MRI scan after he complained of dizziness. Hospital authorities said he underwent some tests and an MRI scan on Saturday and will be discharged on Sunday.
Mr. Maudany, a diabetic, was being treated at the Soukya International Holistic Health Centre where he was shifted from jail early this month.
Sudarshan Ballal, medical director of Manipal Hospital, said: “His condition is stable and we will discharge him tomorrow (Sunday). He is not in the ICU.”
Isaac Mathai, who runs Soukya, said: “His condition has improved after he came to our centre and his BP and sugar levels are normal now. He will be brought back here on Sunday after a day’s observation at Manipal Hospital.” He added that the leader would have his eyes tested at a hospital on Monday.
Dr. Mathai said Mr. Maudany had developed several complications such as diabetic neuropathy and retinopathy. He has no vision in the right eye and just 20 per cent vision in the left. He has spondylitis, hypertension, and renal, cardiac and other diabetic complications, he said. “He is responding well to our integrated treatment and his condition is much better now,” he added.
