Srinagar: The haemoglobin value of the ailing Syed Ali Geelani is “reducing”, said a doctor looking after the Hurriyat Conference chairman’s health.
Geelani was admitted to the SK Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS), Soura, on August 13. “Endoscopy was conducted on Geelani today at around 11 am,” said the doctor. “Report is normal.”
He said that another test, a colonoscopy, will be conducted on the ailing leader on Saturday.
“Routine blood examination, chest x-ray, abdomen USG are being done,” he added.
However, he said, “Geelani’s value of haemoglobin is reducing from last six months. Doctors are still investigating it.”
To keep a closer track on Geelani’s health, “such (medical) examinations are to be conducted on routine basis”, the doctor said.
He said that doctors from the gastroenterology, general medicine and cardiology departments are involved in Geelani’s medical examination.
“It might be on Sunday or Monday that Geelani is discharged from hospital,” he said.
Sources said that the ward where Geelani is admitted is under the constant watch of the J&K Police and CID sleuths.
Geelani’s elder son, Nayeem-u-Zafar Geelani, his eldest son-in-law, Zahoor ul Haq Geelani, and two Tehereek-e-Hurriyat members are accompanying the top resistance leader at the hospital.
