A Delhi court on Saturday allowed former CWG organising committee chief Suresh Kalmadi to undergo an MRI brain scan on the recommendation of Tihar's medical superintendent. Kalmadi is at present lodged in Tihar jail regarding corruption charges against him.
Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh directed the Tihar jail authorities to get the scan of 66-year-old Kalmadi done at a government hospital and
submit the MRI report in the court by July 21. The court said in case the MRI scan is not performed at the LNJP hospital, then the jail superintendent would take Kalmadi to AIIMS for the same.
The court, however, refused Kalmadi's plea to get the scan done at a private hospital.
Kalmadi was earlier also taken to DDU hospital after he complained of dizziness.
"Medical report has been received from the medical officer Central Jail no. 4 (where Kalmadi is lodged). Accused was advised MRI scan of brain," said the judge.
The court on July 14 had asked for a medical report from the jail on an application moved by Kalmadi for medical examination and treatment.
