Earlier, terming reports about AIIMS refusing to admit the commando as 'unfounded', Health and Family Welfare Minister Sushma Swaraj said that the commando has been given a special room with all facilities in the hospital.
She said when the NSG director general came with the request he was told that a special room would be provided in 15 days and he was satisfied.
The minister hoped the commando would come out of the coma.
A special room has been arranged for the commando at AIIMS, which is equipped with ultra-modern facilities and he is under constant observation by doctors from the neurology and emergency departments, hospital sources said.
