Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani was admitted to Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) at Soura on Tuesday after he complained of abdominal pain.
Sources said that the doctors at SKIMS advised him several investigations which confirmed intestinal infection.
Geelani is on pacemaker since 1997. In 2003, his left kidney was removed at Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai as it had developed carcinoma. In 2004, his gall bladder was removed at Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi. He was again operated upon in 2007 and half of his right kidney was removed. In 2008, he was out on new pacemaker at Escorts Heart Institute Delhi. In 2010, his eyes were operated upon at Apollo Hospital in Delhi.
Meanwhile, the party spokesman in a statement said that the octogenarian leader was admitted in SKIMS this morning after complaining of abdominal pain. He was yesterday diagnosed by doctors of the gastroenterology department at super speciality hospital Shareen Bagh Srinagar and was diagnosed to be having the large intestinal infection for which he needed to remain admitted in the hospital.
At SKIMS concerned doctors attended the ailing leader and have put him on treatment and advised some investigations. He is physically weak and frail but stable.
It is pertinent to mention here that besides suffering from multiple ailments, the senior separatist leader is living on the half kidney as his left kidney and half of right kidney has been removed while he was under detention at Ranchi jail Jharkhand in 2002, the spokesman added.
The spokesman appealed the people to pray for his speedy recovery. (KNS)
