Ranchi: Former Chief Minister of Jharkhand Madhu Koda, now in judicial custody on corruption charges, could not be admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) because of 'non-availability' of escort, a special vigilance court was informed here.

The jail authorities told the court of Binoy Kant Khan yesterday that they had on January 20 requested the Ranchi district police to provide escort enabling Koda to be taken to Delhi as per the court's directive, which was not yet materialised.

The submission by the jail authorities came after the court had on January 19 issued a notice to the jailor asking him why Koda was not yet taken to Delhi for treatment.

On the recommendation of the medical board, Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences, Ranchi, the court had on January 4 allowed Koda to be admitted to the AIIMS for spinal cord treatment.

Koda was arrested on November 30, 2009 in connection with accumulating wealth disproportionate to his known source of income, which had allegedly surfaced during the countrywide raids by the IT/ED on October 31, the same year.
