Ahmedabad, Jan 16: Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s international working president Pravin Togadia was found unconscious in a hospital in Shahibagh locality in Ahmedabad late on Monday after being reported “missing” earlier.

The police said he was brought by people to a private Chandra- Mani hospital in an unconscious state, which the doctors claimed was caused by low level of sugar.

He was admitted in the hospital around 9.20 p.m. and later his condition was stated to be stable, the police said.

The police, however, still have no idea how the VHP leader reached Sardarnagar which was about 15 kilometres away from the VHP office from where he reportedly left in an autorickshaw. It was also not clear why he fell unconscious as he had no past history of sugar levels falling so alarmingly.

The details would emerge after the police could speak to Togadia on Tuesday.

Earlier, the Ahmedabad Crime Branch said it had constituted a special team to look for the Vishwa Hindu Parishad Pravin who went missing amid allegations that the Rajasthan Police took him away.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the umbrella body of all saffron outfits, in a one-line statement also expressed concern over the “goings-on around Togadia” and hoped the state government and the police would initiate immediate action.
