The prime accused in the fake stamp case Abdul Karim Telgi and his wife and co-accused Shahida were on Saturday discharged from the Sasoon General Hospital where they had been admitted for treatment after they fell unconscious in their respective barracks.
Incidentally both Telgi and Shahida, who were lodged in the Yerawada central jail, are HIV postive and also suffer from various other diseases.
While Telgi fell unconscious in his egg-shaped cell at the Yerawada Central Jail on April one and was admitted to the hospital the same day, Shahida was brought to the Sasoon on April 20 under similar condition, their lawyer Milind Pawar said.
He said that both of them have been discharged from the hospital and taken to the jail.
As many as 30 tests were carried out on Telgi and he was also given the anti-reaction treatment, to which he did not respond to, Pawar said.
Telgi's daughter Sana and his nephew Irfan were also there with him in the ward consequent to the Special MCOCA Court order in this regard, the lawyer said.
