    Although Parrikar's ailment has been kept under the wraps, a report had emerged that he was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. MumbaiLive, quoting a hospital source, on Sunday reported that Parrikar is undergoing treatment for 'Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer' at Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai.

    The Lilavati Hospital then released a statement saying that various "malicious and misleading reports/rumours" are appearing in the media regarding Parrikar's health.

    "We categorically deny such rumours. We reiterate that Hon. Chief Minister of Goa is being treated and is responding well to the treatment," the statement.

    It is interesting to note that the hospital statement makes no mention of Parrikar's ailment. It neither confirms nor denies if Parrikar is diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer or not.

    Parrikar was on Thursday rushed to Mumbai's Lilavati hospital after he complained of stomach ache. It was then thought to be a case of food poisoning. After the check-up on Wednesday, he was taken to Mumbai in a flight for further examination.
