Mumbai: Karnataka Police accompanied by Mumbai Police on Friday arrived at St. George Hospital to meet Karnataka Congress MLA Shrimant Patil, who was admitted there following chest pain.
The Karnataka Congress had claimed that the BJP “abducted” its MLA Shrimant Patil, ahead of the trust vote of Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy-led government. But Patil said he was in Mumbai for treatment and would return to Bengaluru only after recovering completely.
Karnataka Congress had approached the Bengaluru Police alleging Patil was “abducted” by BJP MLA Laxman Savidhi in order to dethrone the Kumaraswamy-led government in the trust vote.
The Congress also had alleged that Patil was deprived of his right to vote. However, Patil said that he had travelled to Chennai for personal work and later to Mumbai on the advice of a doctor after he developed chest pain.
