Former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda, against whom the Enforcement Directorate and the Income Tax Department are investigating money laundering charges, will not be discharged from hospital today as he had a stomach upset.
"The doctors will take a decision on Sunday or the day after about his discharge," Public Relations officer of the Abdur Razzak Weavers Memorial Hospital, Javed Akhtar said.
Koda got himself admitted to the hospital on complaints of stomach pain on November three after the launch of Income Tax raids on his residence in connection with alleged hawala transactions and illegal investments amounting to Rs 2000 crore.
The Enforcement Directorate and the Income Tax department have instructed the hospital to inform them before his discharge.
A close aide of Koda, Vikas Sinha, was arrested in connection with the case on Saturday.
