Suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh, who is in jail for his alleged complicity in the Saradha scam and had threatened to commit suicide, was Friday hospitalised after he complained of feeling unwell, police said.
"He (Ghosh) had told the jail authorities that he is feeling unwell. That is why he was shifted to SSKM hospital at around 3 a.m.
"The circumstances under which he said he was unwell are still under enquiry and whether there was any attempted suicide or not is yet to be ascertained," Deputy Commissioner of South division, Murlidhar Sharma, told IANS.
Ghosh had Nov 10 threatened to commit suicide if others involved in the swindle were not arrested within three days.
Ghosh, who headed Saradha media arm before being arrested November last year, has been alleging the involvement of several leaders of the ruling Trinamool Congress including its top brass.
He also urged the court to disallow anyone from meeting him in the jail, lest he be "dissuaded or influenced".
Asserting he was framed, Ghosh alleged the investigation was been influenced and demanded to know what action has been taken against those who started the ponzi schemes.
