New Delhi [India], Dec. 22 (ANI): A special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court on Thursday adjourned the hearing in Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Chhagan Bhujbal's hospital transfer case till December 30. A special court on December 14 had directed Bhujbal to be transferred from the state-run J.J. Hospital to Arthur Road jail immediately. Bhujbal was shifted from the jail earlier on October 28 for two medical tests at J.J. Hospital and one at Bombay Hospital. Former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member and activist Anjali Damania had in her plea claimed that Bhujbal continued to remain at the private hospital for almost a month despite completion of the tests. The plea alleged negligence of duty by the jail and hospital authorities. Bhujbal was arrested earlier on March 14 by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan scam and Kalina land case in which he and his relatives were alleged to have received kickbacks.
