Rajendra Mahato discharged from Medanta Hospital

KATHMANDU: Sadbhawana Party Chairman Rajendra Mahato, who was admitted to the Gurgaon-based Medanta City Hospital last week, was discharged on Wednesday, according to Pankaj Das, who has been accompanying the leader to India for his medical trip.

Injured in the police action at the Biratnagar border point in Nepal on December 26, the 57-year-old firebrand leader was flown to New Delhi on January 1 for further check-up and treatment.

It has been learned that Rajendra Mahato, one of the top leaders of agitating United Democratic Madhesi Front, was discharged after his vitals -- primarily blood pressure and blood glucose level -- were rendered stable, and the fresh MRI and CT Scan reports showed no complications in his brain. Mahato had sustained injuries on his head and limbs when he was hit with a  lathi during police action.

The leader, however, suffers from deficiency of Vitamin B 12 and Vitamin D and has been told by doctors to take complete rest for some days along with medication.

He has been called for follow-up after a week, kin Upendra Mahato, also a central member of the Sadbhawana Party, wrote on a Facebook post.

Mahato's party, one of the four constituents of UDMF, has demanding that the government apologised for the police action on him, dubbing it an attempt to assassinate the leader.
