Jailed Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was admitted to Chandigarh’s PGIMER on Monday afternoon due to liver-related problems, is in a stable condition, the medical facility said.
He underwent a medical examination at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research’s hepatology department in the morning.
In the afternoon, Mr Sidhu was admitted to the PGIMER, where he had been brought under heavy security from the Patiala prison.
In the evening, PGIMER issued a statement, saying Mr Sidhu has been kept under observation and is stable.
“Former Indian cricketer Shri Navjot Singh Sidhu has been admitted in hepatology ward, Nehru Hospital Extension, PGIMER, Chandigarh, due to liver-related problems and requires further evaluation.
“He has been kept under observation and is stable now,” the statement said, quoting Professor Virender Singh, head of the hepatology department at the hospital.
The former Punjab Congress chief was on May 20 sent to the Patiala central jail in a 1988 road rage death case. He has been sentenced to one-year rigorous imprisonment by the Supreme Court.
