KATHMANDU, May 25: Chairman of Kantipur Media Group (KMG), Kailash Sirohiya, who is detained at the District Police Office in Dhanusha, has been taken to a hospital following cardiac issues. 

Sirohiya has been under police custody for five days due to issues related to citizenship fraud. According to his lawyer, Raman Karn, Sirohiya was taken to the hospital after he suffered from elevated blood pressure, arrhythmic heartbeats and intense headaches.

Initially admitted to the Provincial Hospital in Janakpur on Friday evening, he was later transferred to Kavya Hospital due to the unavailability of specialized neurological services. Dr S.K. Singh from Kavya Hospital said that Sirohiya is receiving treatment from various medical experts.

His family has indicated that he has pre-existing conditions of diabetes and hypertension. In light of his deteriorating health, the team at Kavya Hospital has sought advice from cardiologist Dr Om Murti Anil for his ongoing care.

Meanwhile, the District Court, Dhanusha, recently extended his detention by three additional days following his arrest at the Kantipur office in Kathmandu on May 21.
