: People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader and Bangalore serial blast accused Abdul Nasir Maudany was on Saturday shifted to Manipal Hospital for an MRI scan after he complained of dizziness.

Hospital authorities said he underwent a few tests and would be discharged on Sunday.

He was taken to Manipal Hospital from Soukya International Holistic Health Centre where he had been admitted for treatment of diabetes- related complications early this month.

Issac Mathai, a practitioner of holistic medicine who runs the centre, said Mr Maudany was advised to undergo an MRI scan as he had complained of dizziness.

“His condition has improved after he came to our centre and his blood pressure and sugar levels are normal now.

He will be brought back to Soukya on Sunday after a day’s observation at Manipal Hospital. We will take him to Agarwal’s Eye Hospital on Monday for eye-related investigations,” Dr Mathai said.

Sudarshan Ballal, Medical Director of Manipal Hospital, said Mr Maudany underwent some tests at the hospital, including an MRI. “His condition is stable and he will be discharged tomorrow. He is not in the ICU,” Dr Ballal said.

Dr Mathai said Mr Maudany was suffering from several complications such as diabetic neuropathy and retinopathy. He had no vision in the right eye and only 20 per cent vision in the left eye. Apart from this, he had spondylitis, hypertension, renal, cardiac and other diabetic complications.

“He is responding well to our integrated treatment and his condition is much better now,” he added.
