The INLD chief was granted three weeks bail by the Delhi High court on June 3 following the demise of his younger brother, Pratap Chautala. The former CM is a heart patient and had undergone a pacemaker implant procedure at Medanta last year.
When asked, his younger son Abhay Singh, said that his father was in a state of mourning at their native village in Sirsa for over a week. “He was experiencing heaviness in chest for the past couple of days. Being a heart patient, it was prudent to shift him for a proper check up at Medanta," Abhay Singh said.
INLD sources said the former chief minister was not allowed by Tihar jail authorities to go to Medanta for a follow up review of the pacemaker implant. Instead, he was sent to Ram Manohar Lohia hospital by the jail authorities.
