Do not discharge Elgar Parishad case accused Hany Babu from Breach Candy Hospital till June 1: Bombay HC | Mumbai News

MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Thursday requested Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai to not discharge a 2018 Elgar Parishad case accused Hany Babu Tharayil till June 1, 2021 and sought a report on his health condition by then.
Thariyal, an English professor from Delhi University, was shifted to the private hospital from the state-run GT Hospital after orders on May 19 from another vacation bench.
His counsel Yug Chaudhry informed vacation bench of Justices S S Shinde and N R Borkar on Thursday that his eye infection has not yet healed and he continued to be Covid positive and his discharge from the hospital may prove “fatal”, if he is discharged sent back to Taloja central prison, in Navi Mumbai.
The HC bench requested the hospital not to discharge him till the next date of June 1 and said in case he is required to be discharged before then, it should seek the court’s permission. He was arrested last July by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
The petition filed by Jenny Roweena, his wife, said he was taken to state-run JJ Hospital first and on May 13 -14 to GT Hospital for Covid treatment and was additionally suffering from an undiagnosed acute eye infection that “due to the utter callousness and neglect of the officials of Taloja Central Prison has resulted in an almost complete loss of vision in his left eye.’’
The bench asked whether ariel’s eye ailment was mucormycosis.
Chaudhry said he and the family do not have an idea whether it is fungal or bacterial infection.
Following this,the bench sought an interim report from the hospital on Babu’s medical condition and treatment before June 1.
“Mucormycosis is a serious infection and somebody may get this after Covid-19 and it affects the life of a person. We Need to find out if he is getting proper treatment,” Justice Shinde said.
Noting that injections for mucormycosis were available only at civic and state-run hospitals, Justice Shinde said: “Today, we read that BMC was supplying the injections to private hospitals too. We need to know if Breach Candy Hospital has them. You (NIA and state prison) should not take it as adversarial litigation.”
The court will hear the matter next on June 1.
