    On Thursday, it was reported that Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) had referred him to a Mumbai hospital. 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.

    MumbaiLive, quoting a hospital source, on Sunday reported that Parrikar is undergoing treatment for Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer at Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai. Reports had said that the Goa CM was being treated by Dr P Jagganath.

    In the latest development, Lilavati Hospital has issued a statement. The statement does not say anything about Pancreatic cancer, it has just said that 'rumours' in the media regarding Parrikar are "misleading".

    Here is the statement issued by the hospital:

    He was initially rushed to Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) after he complained of stomach ache earlier this week.
