Arvind Kejriwal Receives Insulin in Tihar Jail Amid Controversy Over Diabetic Care

Several media outlets reported on the development, with various angles highlighting the political and medical dimensions of the issue. Reports indicate that Kejriwal’s blood sugar levels had risen significantly, prompting the administration of insulin to manage his condition effectively.

According to sources cited by multiple news agencies, including India Today and ABP Live, Kejriwal’s sugar levels reportedly soared to 320, leading to concerns about his health. This prompted authorities to take action, administering insulin to stabilize his condition. However, this action has not been without its share of controversy.

The decision to provide insulin to Kejriwal has sparked a heated debate, with some questioning the necessity of insulin injections for someone whose blood sugar levels were reportedly below 140 at most times. Mohan Sinha, a critic of Kejriwal, took to social media to question the decision, expressing doubts about the need for insulin in this case.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal’s supporters and members of his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have welcomed the move, emphasizing the importance of ensuring proper medical care for the incarcerated leader. AAP spokespersons have reiterated their concerns over Kejriwal’s health and have accused authorities of delaying necessary medical interventions.

The controversy surrounding Kejriwal’s health took a new turn when questions were raised about the diet provided to him in jail. Reports emerged that Kejriwal’s family had sent him mangoes, sweets, and aloo puri, raising concerns about whether this diet was appropriate for his diabetic condition. Delhi Court, as reported by The Financial Express and Times Now, questioned the choice of food items and the compatibility of the diet with Kejriwal’s medical needs.

Moreover, there have been allegations and counter-allegations regarding the adequacy of medical facilities for diabetics in Tihar Jail. While Tihar Jail officials have claimed that arrangements for diabetics are present in the facility, AAP leaders have contested this assertion. The situation escalated further when Tihar Jail sought a diabetologist after initially claiming to have adequate arrangements, as reported by Swarajya and Telangana Today.

Amidst these developments, the judiciary has intervened to address the concerns surrounding Kejriwal’s health. The Delhi Court has directed AIIMS to constitute a medical board to examine Kejriwal’s health condition, as reported by and Daily Excelsior.

The unfolding saga involving Arvind Kejriwal’s health has not only raised questions about the medical care provided to prisoners but has also intensified the political climate surrounding the prominent leader’s arrest and subsequent detention. As the controversy continues to evolve, all eyes remain on Tihar Jail and the judicial system for further developments in this high-profile case.
