Arrested Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, currently admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for a kidney-related ailment, could be discharged in three days, doctors said in New Delhi on Sunday.
"He has shown signs of improvement in the last two days. His creatinine levels (indicators for kidney functioning) are down to 1.45 mg/dl. Considering his medical condition, he may be relieved in 3 days," a senior doctor from AIIMS said, on condition of anonymity.
According to doctors, Amar Singh's medical history created the complications.
"The main problem was due to urinary tract infection and diabetes. Being a transplant patient, these factors added to his worsened condition," said another doctor from the panel examining him Singh.
Medical reports submitted to the high court stated that the 55-year old, suffering from diabetes, underwent a renal transplant in September 2009 and intestinal surgery 10 years ago.
Amar Singh, arrested in the cash-for-votes scam, is on an extended interim bail till Sep 27. He was put under medical observation Sep 13 after he complained of ill-health.
He and two former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs, Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahavir Singh Bhagora, were arrested Sep 6 for their alleged involvement in an attempt to bribe MPs ahead of the July 2008 Parliament trust vote.
