Jailed BSY to be discharged from hospital on Tuesday

October 17, 2011 19:02 IST

Former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, admitted to a hospital in Bengaluru after he complained of chest pain while in judicial custody, would be discharged on Tuesday as an angiogram revealed no significant blockages in arteries.

A five-member medical team of state-run Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research, where Yeddyurappa was admitted on Sunday, reviewed his medical records and decided to discharge him Tuesday, hospital director Dr C N Manjunath said.

However, he said 68-year-old Yeddyurappa had breathing difficulties and palpitation at 11.20 pm on Sunday and was subjected to nebulisation.

There was no change in his urinary symptoms and backache but blood pressure and diabetes were under control. The hospital wants to complete all tests before his discharge, Manjunath said.

A special Lokayukta court had on Saturday rejected bail and issued an arrest warrant against Yeddyurappa, facing allegations of denotifying government land in violation of rules when he was the chief minister.

The Bharatiya Janata Party leader later surrendered before the court, which remanded him in judicial custody till October 22.

However, he was shifted to the hospital from the central prison in Bengaluru on Sunday after he complained of chest pain.
