Cuttack: Ailing BJD MLA Prabhat Biswal, who is accused in the multi-crore Seashore chit fund scam, broke down in front of media camera following medical tests at the SCB Medical College & Hospital here today.
He looked lean and weak both physically and mentally. Sitting on a wheel-chair and wearing a cotton shirt and trouser, the Choudwar legislator became emotional and cried seeing people around him.
“I am feeling very weak. I don’t lie and truth will win,” said Choudwar MLA Prabhat Biswal, who is on an interim bail from Orissa High Court in ponzi scam, in tearful eyes after being administered the CT scan here at the hospital.
His health condition deteriorated after Biswal was arrested by CBI in connection with chit fund scam and lodged in Jail. He was admitted to SCB Medical College & Hospital in critical condition.
“Earlier, he had undergone ultrasound and the doctor found an abscess developed inside his stomach. Even after repeated surgeries, the abscess is not getting dry. Therefore, the doctors wanted him to undergo CT scan to know the reason about the abscess filled in fluid,” said Biswal’s brother.
“His health condition is comparatively developed. But, he has become weak physically and mentally,” he added.
Earlier, the legislator had undergone surgeries due to infection in his spinal cord and stomach. He has been undergoing treatment at the state-run medical college since 2017.
Meanwhile, the Orissa High Court granted him interim bail in April in connection with the chit fund scam.
