On health grounds, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) has decided to not oppose the bail of the Santacruz resident who drove a vehicle onto a railway station platform last week.
The accused, Rajesh Yadav, suffered brain hemorrhage a day after the incident and is serious in the BMCrun KEM Hospital in Parel.
Senior doctors feel that Yadav must have suffered a minor bleed or seizure on the day he drove on to the railway platform. “It is very likely that his sensorium was altered that day itself,“ said a doctor, adding that Yadav
must have suffered a repeat or severe bleed on Saturday .
A senior RPF official from Andheri told TOI, “His medical reports will be produced before the court on Monday and the RPF will not oppose his bail because of his poor health.“ Yadav was rushed to KEM Hospital late on Saturday where he underwent an MRI scan to determine the location and cause of the bleed.“He has a deep intracranial bleed, which has perhaps been caused by his high blood pressure,“ said head of neurosurgery department, Dr Atul Goel. He will be under observation for the next 24 hours before he can be certifi ed as out of danger. Doctors said that Yadav's kidney function too is poor. “We suspect he has renovascular hypertension, which is caused blockage of one or more kidney arteries,“ said a doctor.On Friday , Yadav, who works as a driver, told the police that he had dropped his boss at the airport, and while returning, he accidentally entered the platform after crossing the Andheri subway . A doctor said Yadav couldn't have been held responsible if he suffered a cardiac arrest and caused an accident. “Similarly , he suffered a hemorrhage and drove on to a platform. It was his disability that led to the incident,“ he added.
His condition has improved since he was brought to KEM Hospital. “He is irritable, but better,“ he added.
