India’s best known advocate and former law minister Ram Jethmalani (90) had to be taken for a medical examination at the Apollo Hospitals on Greams Road on Saturday morning. Hospital sources confirmed that it was not a scheduled check-up but added that it was merely a consultation and there was “no emergency”.

He had arrived in the city on Friday evening to much pomp and fanfare from the MDMK, as they lauded his appearing for those convicted in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case and his firm conviction that they ought to be released.

He had checked in to a five-star hotel in Nungambakkam on Friday, and was believed to have attended a wedding that evening. Though there were contrasting reports that the aged lawyer had suffered a fall, hospital sources negated them and said he had been given a clean bill of health. He departed to Mumbai by an afternoon flight.
