Abu Salem has malaria, refuses treatment at hospital

Mumbai, Nov 24, 2012, (IANS):

Jailed gangster Abu Salem, who is suffering from malaria, has refused to get admitted to a hospital, preferring treatment inside the prison, said a hospital official Saturday.

"Salem came to the hospital for diagnosis. He tested positive for malaria Friday," T.P. Lahane, dean of J.J. Hospital, told IANS.

"But he refused to get admitted to the prison ward of the hospital. He said he would get treated within the jail."

Hospital sources, however, said Salem did not get admitted to the hospital's prison ward since his demand for a separate ward was not accepted.

Salem, who was deported from Portugal, has been lodged in Taloja Central Jail in Navi Mumbai the past two years.

He was brought to the J.J. Hospital for tests after he complained of fever and shivering.
Lahane said Salem was referred to doctors from the medicine department, who advised a blood test.

"The test confirmed he was suffering from P vivax malaria and was advised treatment," he said.

Ajmal Kasab, the 26/11 terrorist who was hanged in a Pune jail Nov 21, was diagnosed with dengue-like fever Nov 4. Doctors from the J.J. Hospital treated him at Mumbai's Arthur Road Jail.
