HYDERABAD, OCT. 1. Naseeruddin, president of Tehreek Tehfooz Shariat-e-Islam (TTSI), who was lodged in the Cherlapalli jail after being arrested on the charge of being a Lashkar-e-Taiyba operative, was shifted to Osmania General Hospital on Friday. Naseeruddin's family members petitioned the jail authorities to extend medical treatment to him as he fell sick.
He had swollen legs and hands. Earlier, one of his kidneys was removed following a surgery. He also had slip disc problem and suffering from thyroid disorders, Naseeruddin's lawyer, Shaik Saifullah Khalid, said.
Naseeruddin was kept in the hospital's jail ward with armed guards keeping surveillance. The police refused to allow Naseeruddin's family members to meet him since he was in judicial custody.
Meanwhile, the Ninth Metropolitan Magistrate transferred the petition filed by the Gujraat police seeking Naseeruddin's custody to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate of City Civil Courts.
Mr. Khalid opposed the petition on the ground that it was not in conformity with mandatory Criminal Provision Code rules. On hearing both sides, the Ninth Metropolitan Magistrate transferred the petition to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate to decide upon the issue.
The Darsgah Jihad-O-Shahadat (DJS) president and six others, courted arrest at Charminar in protest against the continued detention of Naseeruddin. The DJS general secretary, Md. Majid, and the TTSI leader, Ahmed Bin Aslam, were among the arrested. Mr. Ali charged that the Government was deliberately delaying Naseeruddin's release.
