Dar, 67, had arrived in London nearly a month ago and has been seeking treatment of an undefined heart complication at a Harley Street hospital. He can avail a maximum of three-month leave and should resume duty by February 21 otherwise he could be permanently relieved of charge, according to rules. However, sources said that the development might eventually bring to an end Dar's almost four-and-a-half-year stint as the finance minister.
