“As he was on fast, we apprehended that he might have suffered from dehydration. His blood pressure has also fallen,” said an attending doctor of the hospital.

The 47-year-old founder leader of Odisha Maobadi Party (OMP) had resorted to an indefinite hunger strike from December 3 demanding speedy trial of cases pending against him and his regular production in court during hearing.
