Speculations include whether Mukesh, brother of Ram Singh, the main accused in the gang-rape case feigned the illness. Mukesh's counsel M L Sharma told the court that "something fishy is going on and I am worried about his hospitalisation due to chest pain". He further told the court that he should be allowed to meet his client in the hospital "right now" as he does not trust the police or the doctors.
Sharma also said, as Mukesh's brother Ram Singh died in jail, so "I don't trust that Mukesh will be provided better medical facilities". He also sought the court's direction to appoint a doctor to examine Mukesh, which was turned down by the judge who said "let us wait for sometime".
The court which was supposed to begin the proceedings at 2 pm waited until 3pm for the hospital's report. He has been admitted to Safdarjung Hospital.
3 other accused- Akshay Singh, Pawan Gupta and Vinay Sharma were brought to the court.
