Mumbai: Ranjit Savarkar, the grandson of Hindutva ideologue Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, was hospitalised late on Friday night after he complained of high blood pressure.

Sources close to Mr Savarkar claimed that the 55-year-old was under a lot of stress and tension following the controversy over his grandfather.

 

The controversy erupted after a booklet, distributed by Congress-affiliated Seva Dal in Madhya Pradesh, questioned Mr Savarkar's credentials as a patriot and his reputation for valour.

"Ranjit has been visiting television studios to defend his grandfather and it took a toll on his health. His blood pressure shot up to 220 last night, following which he was admitted to Raheja Fortis Hospital at Mahim,” a source said.

One of the doctors treating Mr Savarkar said that there is no need to worry and he has been kept under observation.

“Mr Savarkar was admitted to the ICU, but his condition is stable now,” the doctor he said.
