Dalai Lama hospitalised with abdominal pains: doctor

7 hours ago

NEW DELHI (AFP) — The Dalai Lama has been hospitalised due to abdominal pain
and could undergo surgery on Friday, a senior doctor told AFP, but his
spokesman insisted that he was only undergoing "routine tests."

The spiritual leader was admitted to a state-run New Delhi hospital on
Thursday following media reports that abdominal pains for which he had spent
four days in a Mumbai hospital in August had recurred.

A senior doctor at New Delhi's Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, who did not wish to
be identified, told AFP that the Dalai Lama, a former Nobel peace Prize
winner, had been hospitalised.

"He was admitted when he complained of abdominal pain and now chances are
that the Dalai Lama will be operated upon, most probably tomorrow (Friday),"
the doctor said.

Hospital chief Nalini Kaul declined to comment on the Dalai Lama's health or
what treatment he would receive but the Press Trust of India, quoting
unnamed sources, also said the monk was likely to be operated upon on

However, a spokesman for the Dalai Lama dismissed the report of surgery and
said that the spiritual leader was undergoing "routine tests."

The Buddhist monk had been scheduled to return to his home-in-exile in
northern India on Thursday, but spokesman Tenzin Takhla told AFP that the
73-year-old would now remain in hospital at least until Saturday.

"There is nothing to worry about as His Holiness is undergoing routine tests
for which he had to be hospitalised," Takhla said, rejecting the reports of
