The chief minister, on his return, flew to Mumbai from Panaji on Thursday afternoon and was admitted at the Lilavati Hospital. He would stay in the hospital for at least a day for a “review health check-up”, a senior official from the hospital told reporters.
The CMO officials said Parrikar is expected to return to Panaji from Mumbai on August 25.
