DMK president MK Stalin was discharged from Chennai’s Apollo Hospital on Thursday afternoon after a minor surgical procedure for the removal of a cyst from his right thigh, the hospital said.

Stalin, 65, underwent the surgery early Thursday after being admitted at midnight following a health scare.

“DMK president MK Stalin was admitted to Apollo Hospital in Chennai late last night. He underwent a minor surgical procedure for the removal of a cyst from his right thigh. He will be discharged this afternoon, Apollo hospital said in a statement after the surgery.

The hospital issued a statement in the morning saying the minor surgical procedure was for the removal of a cyst from his right thigh.

T R Baalu, Principal Secretary, DMK said Stalin felt discomfort in his home late Wednesday night and was taken to Apollo hospital.

“There is nothing critical. As he was continuously involved in party works, he did not go for medical check-ups for the past two months. Doctors have examined Stalin and he will be in rest for one or two days,” Baalu told HT.

Stalin became the president of DMK on August 28 after the death of his father and DMK supremo Karunanidhi on August 7.
