Former Vice President Ahmed Adeeb was treated at Indira Gandi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) on Friday.
Maldives Correctional Service (MCS) informed that Adeeb was brought in with a swollen forehead, and that he is admitted in IGMH bservation.
When questioned regarding Adeeb's injury, an MCS Officer said that it was due to an accident in the bathroom, and that Adeeb had not disclosed further information regarding his injury.
Adeeb was arrested on India's Toothukudi harbour after attempting to flee on a tugboat. He has been declared free from his 33-year-jail sentence, but is being held until the appeal filed by the Prosecutor General against Adeeb in the Supreme Court is settled.
