Kolhapur: As the decision on the bail application of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Nitesh Rane was deferred to Wednesday, he continued to remain in Kolhapur’s Chhatrapati Pramila Raje Civil Hospital.
Rane is serving judicial custody and has moved a bail application before the Sindhudurg court.
The hearings took place on Tuesday, and the decision over the bail application has been reserved for Wednesday.
Rane was admitted to the CPR Hospital in Kolhapur on Monday after he complained of chest discomfort and neck pain. A dedicated team of specialist doctors have been deployed to monitor Rane’s health. According to the hospital sources, Rane was restless the entire day on Tuesday as well. He looked stressed, said one of the doctors from the team requesting anonymity.
“The team suggested him CT angiography, a non-invasive procedure to detect heart problems. Due to the medication, his blood pressure is in the normal range. The MRI scan has been advised for his neck pain, but it could not be carried out owing to some technical issues,” said the doctor.
Rane has been admitted to a special ICU award. The police continue to provide security to him.
Rane is one among 11 accused in a December 18, 2021, attempt-to-murder case of a Shiv Sainik, Santosh Parab.
