New Delhi: Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, arrested for his alleged role in 2008 cash-for-vote scam, was Monday night admitted in All India Institute of Medical Sciences
(AIIMS) following a rise in creatinine level in his body, Tihar jail spokesman Sunil Gupta said.
Singh, 55, was admitted in the private ward of AIIMS at around 8pm, Gupta said.
"Since his creatinine level was high, we decided to shift him to AIIMS", he added.
A panel of doctors at Tihar jail examined Singh, found
his creatinine level high and decided to refer him for
admission in AIIMS, Tihar sources said.
Dr S Gupta, head of the Nephrology of AIIMS, is attending on Singh.
Singh, former Samajwadi Party general secretary, has been in Tihar jail since his arrest on September 6 in connection with the cash-for-vote scam.
Earlier in the day, Tihar jail authorities, quoting a report on his medical status, told a special court here that health parameters of Amar Singh are "stable and normal".
Singh is seeking interim bail from a Delhi court on medical ground.
