New Delhi, Sept 30 (ANI): Detained politburo member of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), Kobad Ghandy, was admitted to the G B Pant Hospital on Wednesday after he complained of being unwell.
Ghandy, who is presently in judicial custody in Tihar Jail, was brought to the hospital where his supporters demanded adequate medical treatment for him by expert doctors.
Rona Wilson, Secretary (Public Relations), Committee for Release of Political Prisoners, an NGO, said that Ghandy is suffering from prostate cancer and also needs immediate treatment for his cardiac and irritable bowel syndrome.
"We want Ghandy to be shifted to a super speciality hospital as he has not been given proper medical treatment. We want a team of special doctors to take care of his health. Otherwise, his life will be thrown into danger," claimed Wilson.
Ghandy, who heads the CPI (Maoist) publication wing, was nabbed in South Delhi following inputs from intelligence agencies. He has been a part of the People's War Group (PWG) since its initial stages.
Ghandy also played an important role in fostering the development of the front's organisations. In 1994, he was allegedly active in floating a forum named the All India People's Resistance Forum.
He had gone underground after the merger of the Communist Party of India (Marxist Leninist), the People's War Group and the aoist Communist Centre of India in 2004 when the CPI (Maoist) came into existence. (ANI)
