Mahipal Maderna hospitalised after chest pain

Mahipal Maderna, who was sacked as Rajasthan minister and suspended from the Congress' primary membership over alleged involvement in the case of a missing nurse, has been hospitalised here after he complained of chest pain, sources said Sunday. "Maderna has been admitted to the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) of Mathura Das Mathur Hospital. He is under observation," said a doctor at the hospital. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Saturday quizzed his wife Lila and Congress legislator from Luni constituency Malkhan Singh over their alleged involvement in the case of missing nurse Bhanwari Devi.
Supporters of ex-Rajasthan minister Mahipal Maderna roughed up scribes outside the Mathuradas Mathur Hospital in Jodhpur where Maderna has been admitted. Reportedly, cops present at the spot chose to remain tight-lipped about the incident. Reports suggest that 50-odd mediaperson who had gathered outside the hospital were attacked by Maderna supporters and some scribes suffered injuries. Cameras and microphones were snatched from media personnel and their OB vans too were damaged. The police personnel present said action would be taken once a formal FIR was lodged in the incidence.
