Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leader Abdul Karim Tunda was on Friday admitted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for special cardiac care.

The 70-year-old LeT ideologue, who was arrested on Indo-Nepal border last Friday, was last night admitted to Safdurjung hospital after he complained of chest pain, police said.

However, keeping in view the specialised care and security concerns, Tunda was shifted to AIIMS this afternoon and admitted to Intensive Cardiac Care Unit.

A heavy contingent of armed police guard has been placed outside the ICCU unit of the AIIMS where Tunda, who has been giving details about spread of terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba in India, is being treated.

Doctors attending Tunda refused to divulge any details about his health condition.

Tunda, who is in Police remand till Saturday, was >attacked by a group of Hindu activists outside court in Patiala House complex where he was being produced before a Magistrate.
