NEW DELHI—Hospital treatment of Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara, who is imprisoned at the Tihar Jail in New Delhi, has once again been delayed. He was brought to the hospital on a stretcher at 7 AM earlier today. Doctors referred him for some tests, and prescribed medicines.
No formal tests were carried out, and he was asked to come back on July 30, despite the pain being severe and critical.
Upon returning to the Tihar Jail, Bhai Hawara complained about the visit to the hospital being a waste of time. He asked that these recommendations could have been made at the jail itself. He asked why the doctors refused to see him, despite the court orders. The jail staff once again arranged for Bhai Hawara to be taken back to the hospital; however by then, the doctor assigned to him had already left.
Bhai Hawara will be taken to the hospital again tomorrow.
Sikh24 had earlier reported that Bhai Hawara is unable to walk or stand without support for more than a few minutes. Last few times, he was brought out to meet his family members on a stretcher.
