Rahman, who is pursuing PhD at Meerut’s Chaudhary Charan Singh University was arrested on Octover 5 last year alongside Kerala journalist Siddique Kappan and two others while on way to Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district to meet the gang-rape victim’s family.
The police put them in jail under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

According to the Times of India, Sakhawat Khan, Rehman’s father-in-law, said doctors advised surgery since his condition is “critical”.

Rahman requires Rs 2 lakh along with 10 units of blood for the surgency. Doctors have advised him to visit the hospital again next week.

Confirming this, jail authorities, according to the Times of India, have received the estimated cost that they will send to the government for approval.

Rahman, who is suffering from a lifelong heart condition, fell ill in September after which a court in Lucknow directed the jail authorities to ensure a “proper treatment for him.”
First he was checked at the local health centre in Mathura. Then he was shifted to the district hospital in Agra and later to SN Medical College where doctors referred him to AIIMS. The jail authorities took him to AIIMS only after getting his checkup approved at the AIIMS.
