(62) has been undergoing treatment for a pancreatic ailment at his residence since October 14, when he was discharged from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.

Justice R M Borde was hearing a petition filed by social activist Trajano D'Mello seeking that the court direct Chief Secretary Dharmendra Sharma to evaluate Parrikar's health by a panel of expert doctors and release a medical report.
