Accused in Bombay hospital murder case undergoing psychiatric treatment
A man, who attacked people in the general ward of Bombay hospital last week and had ended up injuring two people and killing one, is undergoing treatment for psychiatric illness at the state run JJ hospital.
According to the sources, Shahabuddin Mohabali Talukdar has now been shifted to the Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) of the hospital for treatment of other health issues like diabetes, kidney trouble, tuberculosis and HIV.
Speaking about his psychiatric condition, Dr Yusuf Matcheswala one of the several doctors handling Talukdar's case at JJ hospital said, "After we started medication for his psychiatric illness the symptoms have come under control.
"He also spoke about the incident that happened the other day.
He said he felt people were attacking him and so he started attacking them in self defence."
Dr T P Lahane, Dean, JJ hospital said, "His other health issues also have to be taken care of. An MRI scan revealed that there is an old scar in his temporal lobe indicating an old case of TB. He also has kidney problems and diabetes.
So we are now taking care of all of that. But the psychiatric treatment will continue."
