Ajmer dargah blast accused Bhavesh Patel, who was lodged in Alwar Central Jail, was discharged from the hospital a week after he was admitted here on complaints of weakness. Sources said Patel, however, refused to break his fast which he has been observing since August 1.

His deteriorating condition had panicked the prison administration. A senior administration official said he was being administered glucose.

“He has been fasting since August 1 and was admitted in the Rajeev Gandhi General Hospital on August 7. Initially, he refused to have even IV fluids. However, senior administration official somehow managed to make him agree to it,” said a jail officer.

He said Patel’s condition improved following which he was discharged on Friday evening and shifted back to the jail. He will be under the observation of the prison’s medical staff.

Made an accused in the Ajmer dargah blast case, Bhavesh Patel was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) from Noida in March. He was hiding in ashrams on the banks of Narmada river in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat as a holy man for the past two years. Patel is suspected to have been part of the team that had planted the bomb at the dargah on October 11, 2007, killing three persons and injuring 15.

He was earlier lodged in Jaipur Central Jail, but had recently been shifted to Alwar. Patel is the second Ajmer dagah blast accused to have observed indefinite fast. Bharat Bhai was admitted to SMS Hospital on January 27, a few days after he went on an indefinite fast against Union home minister Shushil Kumar Shinde’s remarks linking BJP and RSS with terrorism.
