Delhi police on Saturday alleged before a court in New Delhi that arrested CPI (Maoist) Politburo member Kobad Gandhy was living in the capital under a fictitious identity and had got himself treated at a hospital in New Delhi.

Public prosecutor Naveen Kumar referred to medical records seized by the police at the time of his arrest and claimed that the accused was staying in the capital by identifying himself as Narsee Patel.

"As per the medical records recovered from his possession, Gandhy was getting himself treated at Sitaram Bhartiya hospital here as Narsee Patel," he told Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja.

The court was hearing an application filed by Rajesh Tyagi, counsel for Gandhy, alleging that the accused, who was reportedly suffering from cardiac ailments and prostate cancer, was being denied basic medical facilities at the Tihar Jail, where he is currently lodged.

The court, which had on October one summoned a senior Medical Officer of the Jail with all his medical records, did not pass any direction after the Jail doctor submitted that the accused was already referred to GB Pant Hospital, which is a super-speciality centre.

Gandhy was arrested on September 21 and has been sent to judicial custody till October six.

Meanwhile, police sources said the Special Cell, which is investigating the case, would soon approach the court for seeking his custodial interrogation.
