Mumbai: Suspended NCP leader Padamsinh Patil, arrested in connection with murder of Congress leader Pawanraje Nimbalkar in 2006, was on Tuesday admitted to a hospital here after he complained of chest pain.

Patil (69), who is lodged in Taloja jail in Navi Mumbai, complained of chest pain, high blood pressure and hypertension this morning and was admitted to a government hospital in Vashi in Navi Mumbai, a senior CBI official said.

"His condition is stable and he is undergoing treatment and will be discharged as soon as he is fine," the official said.

Patil was arrested on June 6 this year by the CBI for allegedly hatching a conspiracy to murder Nimbalkar due to business and political rivalry.

Last week, a sessions court in Alibag had rejected Patil's bail application stating that prima facie a case has been made out against Patil and that it was a serious offence.

The CBI has arrested six others in the case -- Parasmal Jain, Dinesh Tiwari, Mohan Shukla, Satish Mandade, Pintu Singh and Kailash Yadav.
