Justice M R Shah, a sitting judge of the Supreme Court who was airlifted to New Delhi on Thursday after he complained of chest discomfort, has undergone angioplasty at a private hospital in the national capital, said a statement from Fortis Escorts.
Justice Shah was airlifted after he experienced chest discomfort while travelling to Kangra, Himachal Pradesh on Thursday and was admitted to the Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, Okhla, New Delhi, added the statement.
He has been placed under the care of Dr Atul Mathur, Executive Director - Cardiology.
