Delhi Police team at Apollo to record Rahul's statement
New Delhi, June 5 (UNI) A Delhi Police team has reached Apollo Hospital to take the statement of late BJP leader Pramod Mahajan's son Rahul, who had taken seriously ill after 'drug overdose' at a party on June one.
The officials would be recording the statement as hospital authorities had declared him 'fit' for such questioning, Spokesman Karam Thakhur said.
Rahul had been moved to a private ward from the Intensive Care Unit today after his condition improved further.
The hospital had not allowed a city police team that had come yesterday for the same purpose, saying he was not yet in a condition medically for making a statement to the police.
Meanwhile, the hospital stood by what it had said on June 3 that all 15 tests for toxins, except two (one that was boderline and another that was within normal limits) had come negative.
However, some tests that were not carried out in-house as the hospital did not have facilities for them, were got done through Dr Lal's Pathological Lab, and those tests had their own independent results, hospital Public Relations Officer Sanjiv Chowbey said.
It had also been stated by the hospital's Director Medical Services Anupam Sibal on June 3 that Alcohol had been found in Rahul's urine sample even though it was very less (18).
He had also added that whatever had been injested was done late on June 1 and test sample was collected at about 0600 hrs on June 2 and such substances did not stay in the blood for very long.
About media reports that police wanted to talk to Dr Sibal and also go through the hospital records, the PRO said, we had learnt about it from the TV and not received anything from the police formally.
