Bengaluru: Abdul Karim Telgi, a convict in counterfeit stamp paper scam, is on ventilator and is suffering from meningitis, according to his lawyer.

"He is alive, but very critical and has been admitted to Victoria hospital. He is in the ICU and on ventilator. He is suffering from meningitis," Telgi's lawyer M T Nanaiah said in Bengaluru on Monday.

Telgi was admitted four days back, he added. "He should have been admitted a little bit earlier. There has been a delay," he said.

Meningitis is an acute inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges.

Telgi was arrested in Ajmer in November 2001 and has been suffering from diabetes and hypertension for over 20 years, besides other ailments, including AIDS.
