SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik, was admitted to Fortis Hospital Vasant Kunj, New Delhi, on Monday.
A statement issued here by JKLF said, Malik had fallen ill in February during his imprisonment at Central Jail Srinagar.
“He was then admitted in a private hospital in Srinagar where doctors diagnosed him of high infection and put him on antibiotics for 45 days. He has been losing weight and feeling tired for the last some months. Doctors termed it worrisome and advised him to go through some medical examinations as soon as possible,” it said.
The front said most of recommended medical examinations were possible only in New Delhi, so Malik went there on April 26 and was subsequently admitted in the hospital.
“He had to return back on the same day (April 26) as JKLF ideologue Jenab Aman Ullah Khan Sahib died in Rawalpendi. Early Monday morning, he reached New Delhi and went straightaway to the hospital,” the statement said.
A panel of doctors was examining his health and he would go through a series of medical tests, it said, adding that Malik has been suffering from a heart ailment and has undergone operations for the other ailments he has been carrying for a long time.
