Activist Varavara Rao to be shifted to Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai
Poet-activist Varavara Rao, jailed in the Bhima Koregaon case, will be shifted to Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai for 15 days, the Bombay High Court said on Wednesday in response to a plea from his wife.
Arguing on his behalf, senior lawyer Indira Jaising said the 80-year-old had sustained head injuries at the JJ Hospital. “Varavara Rao is completely bed-ridden and has no medical attendant. He is in diapers and has a catheter. The catheter was not changed for three months as there was no one to change it,” Jaising said.
