International Working President of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad Pravin Togadia was found late on Monday, hours after the VHP claimed he was missing.
Togadia was last seen leaving the Vishwa Hindu Parishad office in Ahmedabad with a bearded man around 10.45 am. He arrived unconscious in an ambulance at the city’s Chandramani Hospital in Shahibaug locality around 9.20 pm, Desh Gujarat reported, quoting Dr Rupkumar Agrawal.
“He has been given glucose and his condition has improved,” Agrawal said, adding that the VHP leader had fainted because of low blood sugar. “Various tests are being conducted.”
As news of Togadia’s hospitalisation spread, several VHP workers gathered around the facility. The police have heightened security around the hospital, the Navbharat Times reported.
The joint commissioner of police had pointed out that Togadia had gone missing without his Z-plus security cover – the highest level of security cover provided in India.
