New Delhi: A photo of former Maharashtra deputy chief minister Chhagan Bhujbal showing his frail health has gone viral on social media. 

The influential NCP leader is shown sitting on a chair with an unshaven beard and a visible decline in his health. Media reports say that the photo was taken  in a hospital where he was rushed after he complained of a toothache.

It is said that Bhujbal has lost over 10 kg weight since his arrest in March this year. 

A report in Deccan Chronicle claimed that Bhujbal has been diagnosed with enlarged prostate and shrunken right kidney. 

Bhujbal, remanded in judicial custody in an alleged money laundering case, was admitted to ICU of the multi-speciality hospital in South Mumbai on April 18 after he complained of severe chest pain and high blood pressure.  

Bhujbal, also the former PWD Minister, has been lodged in Arthur Road Jail for a month after ED arrested him for alleged involvement in the construction of Maharashtra Sadan in Delhi and the Kalina land grabbing case.
