Bangalore: Former Karnataka Minister H Halappa, who has been hospitalised in Shimoga since his arrest on rape charge, was on Friday shifted to a state-run hospital here
for further treat on Friday.

Halappa was admitted to Victorial Hospital here after a medical checkup at the central jail where he was brought from Shimoga amidst tight security, police said.

A special room has been provided to Halappa and a four-member medical team set up to treat him, they said.

On May 9, Halappa was admitted to McGann Hospital in
Shimoga after he complained of chest pain hours after his
arrest.

A magistrate court in Shimoga yesterday permitted Halappa
to be shifted from McGann Hospital to Victoria Hospital.

The former minister was arrested following a complaint by
Chandravathi, wife of financier and his friend Venkatesh
Murthy, that he had raped her in November last.

Halappa quit as Food and Civil Supplies Minister on May 2
after the rape charge surfaced, but has denied the allegation
saying it was a political conspiracy.

His bail application would come up for hearing before the
Karnataka High Court on May 18.
