Tamil Nadu Minister without portfolio, Senthil Balaji, who is in Puzhal central prison in a case related to a job-for-cash scam, was admitted to the Government Stanley Medical College Hospital here after he complained of Chest pain.

The minister, according to sources, was also complaining of numbness in his foot and also said that he could not sit for long. - IANS
