Earlier in the day, Jain was admitted to the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Hospital after he collapsed in a bathroom at Tihar Jail owing to dizziness.
Delhi Government officials had released a photograph of Jain at Lok Nayak Hospital, where he could be seen lying on a bed with oxygen support.
“Around 6 am on Thursday, Satyendar Jain slipped inside the jail hospital, where he was kept under observation for general weakness,” a Tihar Jail spokesperson said. He was examined by doctors there and his vital parameters turned out to be normal.

“Today, a dictator is bent on killing a good person who worked day and night to provide good treatment to the public,” Delhi CM Kejriwal tweeted, adding: “Dictator has only one thought – Finish everyone. He lives only in “I”. He only wants to see himself. God is watching all and will do justice to all. I pray to God for Satyendra ji’s speedy recovery. May God give him the strength to fight against these adverse circumstances.”
