Nearly a week after he was injured in a clash with police, Madhesi leader Rajendra Mahato was taken to Delhi on Friday for further treatment.

Mahato, who was undergoing treatment at BP Koirala Institute of Health Science (BPKIHS) in Dharan, was brought to Kathmandu by a helicopter. He was later taken to Delhi by an Indian Airlines plane Friday afternoon. According to Sadbhavan Party’s General Secretary Manish Suman, he will receive treatment at Delhi’s Medanta Hospital.

Mahato is also a patient of uric acid and blood pressure, according to Sadbhavana Party.

Mahato was thrashed by police as he tried to block the Nepal-India border check-point in Biratnagar on Saturday. He then walked to the Indian side, but was taken back to Golden Hospital in Biratnagar by an ambulance. He sustained a minor injury to his head, and doctors wanted to discharge him after bandaging his wound.

However, Mahato asked doctors to conduct a CT Scan and photos of him doing the tests spread on social networking sites, prompting Madhesi protesters to vandalise and torch public property in Janakpur.

Mahato insisted on being admitted into the ICU, and when doctors prepared to shift him to the observation ward he demanded a discharge paper and went to BP Koirala Institute of Health Science (BPKIHS), Dharan where he got himself admitted into intensive care.

Orthopedic specialist Yagya Raj Kharel, one of the three doctors involved in Mahato’s treatment at the BPKIHS, said: “His minor wounds have already healed.”

However, Sadbhavana Party is still claiming that Mahato is in ‘critical condition’. The party even performed prayers for his speedy recovery.

    Why only leaders are taken to renowned hospitals when they are sick or injured. What about the ordinary citizens?

    Gone to South for Health like in the Tom and Jerry movies.
