New Delhi: Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan was shifted to the Covid-19 ICU Medanta Hospital, Lucknow, a day after he was brought to the premises from Sitapur Jail.
In a health bulletin released here on Monday, the hospital said Azam Khan’s oxygen needs shot up during the day to “10 litres per minute”, which is why “the critical care team of the Medanta Hospital, Lucknow, shifted him to the Covid ICU”.
The 72-year-old leader and his son Abdullah Khan were confirmed Covid-19 positive on 30 April and they were admitted to the private hospital from the Sitapur jail on 9 May.
Khan and his son have been languishing in jail since February 2020. His wife Tazeen Fatima was also arrested along with them but she was released on bail in December 2020.
