Manmohan Singh admitted to AIIMS

New Delhi: Former prime minister Manmohan Singh was admitted to the All-Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi on Sunday evening after he complained of chest pain and uneasiness, sources said.

Manmohan Singh, 87, is under observation in the cardiothoracic ward of the premier hospital, they said.

“All his parameters are fine. He is under observation at AIIMS,” a source close to him said, adding that he was taken to the hospital after he complained of “uneasiness”.
