Bhubaneswar: BJP leader Jayanarayan Mishra, who was granted conditional bail by Orissa High Court on July 17 in connection with Banabira firing incident, was admitted to All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, on Friday.

The saffron party leader suddenly fell sick and was rushed to the hospital for treatment.

He had walked out of Sohela sub-jail in Bargarh district on July 19.

The bail was granted to Mishra against two sureties of Rs 50, 000 each. The court had also asked him not to move out of his native place without the permission of lower court.

Earlier on May 15, the BJP leader was granted interim bail on health grounds, about 10 days after being shifted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, from SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack, where he had been undergoing treatment since April 24.

Jayanarayan, who was arrested by Padampur police on March 15, was initially admitted to Veer Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (VIMSAR) in Burla on April 22 after he complained of chest pain and was then shifted to Cuttack after his condition deteriorated.

A person was killed while Labour Minister Sushant Singh’s brother Subrat Singh sustained grievous injuries in the firing incident near Banabira village under Sohela block of Bargarh district, ahead of the Bijepur bypoll on February 22.
