The ED arrested the former Maharashtra PWD minister in a money-laundering case on 14 March. A court on Tuesday remanded him in ED's custody till 17 March.

"We have sent a team of doctors to the ED office to examine Bhujbal after he complained of uneasiness," dean of JJ Hospital Dr TP Lahane told PTI.

Meanwhile, an ED source said Bhujbal denied he had any knowledge about the Maharashtra Sadan scam even today.

"Today we confronted him with statements given by some of the persons (witnesses). However he denied everything," said an ED official.

Bhujbal is accused of taking kickbacks in awarding of contract for Maharashtra Sadan, the state guest house in Delhi. The ED had told the court that his arrest was necessary as he was not cooperating with the probe.

He would be produced in the court on Thursday.
