Terming as "unreasonable" the frequent visits of Nitish Katara murder case convicts Vikas and Vishal Yadav from Tihar Jail to various hospitals, the Delhi high court today asked Aiims to set up a medical board to examine them.
A bench of justices Gita Mittal and VK Shali also asked the jail authorities to produce medical records of the two convicts.
Ordering formation of a medical board to examine the duo at 11 am on February 7, the bench asked the Aiims authorities to file the report on their health condition.
After going through the jail records on their treatment at Aiims and Batra Hospital, the court said, "Before passing any order, the bench would like to know the present health condition of the convicts."
The court also termed their visits to Aiims and Batra Hospital as "unreasonable" and asked the hospitals to produce their medical records within three weeks.
"These are unreasonable visits. No record suggested that the treatment for TB was given to them. It appeared there was no need of their hospital visit," the bench said, while going through the records which stated that Vishal visited Batra Hospital more than 40 times, while Vikas went to Aiims for over 80 times.
The court asked Aiims to submit Vikas' medical records since 2008 till date in a sealed cover to it by February 24, while asking Batra Hospital to produce the same pertaining to Vishal's treatment there till date since 2002.
