Mumbai, Aug 6: Former Maharashtra deputy chief minister and NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal, who was convicted in a money laundering case and was later released on bail, has been admitted to Jaslok Hospital in Mumbai. The exact reason behind his admission to hospital is now known yet.
Bhujbal was admitted to Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital even in May this year.
The Bombay High Court granted him bail in the money laundering case on May 4 after which the senior politician underwent treatment at the civic-run KEM Hospital before being discharged five days later.
The 70-year-old Nationalist Congress Party leader is accused of misusing his position to launder Rs 857 crore during the redevelopment of the Maharashtra Sadan, which is the state guesthouse in New Delhi. He allegedly accepted kickbacks through firms owned by his relatives.
Bhujbal was arrested in March 2016 in Mumbai by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with its probe in a money laundering case registered against him and others.
