Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi, who has been undergoing treatment at AIIMS following a severe heart attack, is in stable condition and will be examined by an American neurologist.

"His condition is stable and his neurological system is being closely monitored," D K Sharma, Medical Suprintendent of AIIMS, said.

The American neurologist Den Henley is here to examine Dasmunsi. "Dr Henley is a neurologist from Johns Hopkins University and he has come to look into the case of Dasmunsi on the recommendation of their family doctor," said PP Singh, APS to the ailing minister.

"Henley yesterday had an informal discussion with the AIIMS doctors about Dasmunsi's condition," Singh said, adding, "he will be conducting necessary tests today to ascertain whether further treatment can be carried out here or some where else."

The 62-year old minister was admitted to AIIMS following complete left ventricular failure on Monday last.
