A team of psychiatrists from JJ would check Kasab, when he would have “bouts of depression”. “The jail authorities would call us whenever he had depression. There would be bouts and doctors from the psychiatry department would go to the jail,” said Dr T P Lahane, JJ hospital dean.
During the last four years, when Kasab suffered from indigestion, eye infection and a skin problem, he was either treated by doctors from JJ or taken to the hospital where a special bulletproof room was prepared.
When Kasab was caught by the police at Girgaum Chowpatty, he had scratches on the right hand which were immediately treated by a team of doctors at Nair Hospital.
Meanwhile, doctors said Kasab’s initial blood report was “dengue positive” for which he was treated inside the jail late last month. Later, he continued to show symptoms of high fever and was given proper treatment due to which he recovered.
