Yashwant sustains head injury

Senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha, who is lodged in the Hazaribagh Central Jail, suffered a head injury on Friday when he fell and hit a wall, jail sources said here.

“There is swelling, but no bleeding. Jail doctors as well as his (Sinha’s) personal doctor
attended to him and prescribed medicine,” they said, adding that the former external
affairs minister is under observation.

BJP state unit president Ravindra Rai, who visited Sinha in the jail, said the veteran leader injured himself when the chair on which he was sitting broke.

“Doctors said he is okay. If there is any problem, a CT scan would be done,” Rai added.

Sinha is in 14-day judicial remand from June 3 in connection with a case of alleged
assault on a government official during a BJP-sponsored demonstration here on June 2.
