Senior BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain was on Tuesday admitted to Lilavati Hospital following a cardic arrest, sources said on Tuesday. 


According to the ANI, Shahnawaz Hussain was admitted to Lilavati Hospital reportedly after a heart attack.


Dr. Jaleel Parkar of Lilavati Hospital told the ANI that his angioplasty was done following the heart attack.


The ANI reported that Shahnawaz Hussain suffered cardiac arrest and was admitted to Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai, earlier this evening.

Meanwhile, senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkar on Tuesday evening wrote on X, wishing Shahnawaz Hussain a speedy recovery and eagerly anticipating your return to public service, in good health and high spirits.

Shahnawaz Hussain (54) underwent the medical procedure after he "showed the evolvement of a heart attack", said Dr Jalil Parkar, senior consultant, Lilavati Hospital.

Angioplasty is a procedure carried out by doctors to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels that supply blood to the heart.

The procedure was preceded by an angiography which showed a blockage on the right side of the BJP leader's heart, Dr Parkar said.

"Around 4.30 pm, Hussain complained of high blood pressure. Mumbai BJP president Ashish Shelar called me for his hospitalisation to Lilavati where Hussain showed the evolvement of a heart attack. Cardiologist Suresh Vijan performed an angioplasty on him," said Dr Parkar, according to the PTI.

There was no damage to his heart muscle, he added.

As Shahnawaz Hussain stated that he was previously suffering from acidity, it was decided to first conduct an ECG and 2D echo test, according to the doctor, reported the PTI.

"Dr Suresh Vijan was called for further check-up. Dr Vijan did an angiography which showed a blockage on the right side of the heart. Hence, it was immediately decided to perform an angioplasty on Hussain," Dr Parkar said.
