External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj’s daughter Bansuri Swaraj was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi after she developed ‘‘neurological symptoms”.
Bansuri, 31, was admitted on Thursday evening and is under the care of MV Padma Srivastava of the department of neurology at the Cardio Neuro Tower in AIIMS. She is in a stable condition.
While the hospital refused to comment, sources at the hospital said Bansuri had suffered a mild stroke.
“She had some difficulty in speaking, which is the most common stroke symptom, but is otherwise doing fine. It was a very mild form of stroke,” a source in the hospital told Hindustan Times.
“As she is young, the hospital is running all possible tests to rule out any problem. She will be kept in the hospital for a few days,” the source said.
Bansuri was recently in the news when Sushma Swaraj admitted her daughter was a junior lawyer in the team that represented former Indian Premier League chief Lalit Modi after his passport was cancelled but had received no money.
