The 47-year-old minister was brought to hospital by ED officers after questioning him for several hours since Tuesday. He was brought to hospital after he complained of chest pain.
Doctor said repeated ECGs showed abnormalities though blood tests did not show signs of heart attack.
At 10am on Wednesday, he was taken for an angiogram. Doctors later said he had triple vessel disease. “Coronary angiogram revealed triple vessel disease for which a CABD bypass surgery is advised at the earliest,” the bulletin said.
ED sources said Senthil Balaji had been arrested. “He complained of chest pain, which we cannot ignore. He has been admitted to hospital. After he is discharged, he will be produced before a court. The court will decide the further course of action,” added an ED source.
