PANAJI: Goa Public Works Department Minister Sudin Dhavalikar has been admitted to a hospital in Mumbai, a family member said today, but refused to identify the illness.

Sudin Dhavalikar, 61, was undergoing regular health check-up at the hospital in Mumbai where he was admitted yesterday, his younger brother Dipak Dhavalikar told PTI.

Another family member, on condition of anonymity, said the minister underwent a biopsy for the detection of his illness.

The family refused to divulge any further details.

Sudin Dhavalikar is the second minister from the Goa cabinet to be hospitalised in Mumbai.

Goa's Power Minister Pandurang Madkaikar was admitted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in the capital city of Maharashtra last month after he suffered a brain stroke.

He is still undergoing treatment at the hospital.

Earlier this year, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai for a pancreatic ailment.

He later went to a hospital in the US for his health treatment and returned after three months.

Sudin Dhavalikar's Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party is a constituent of the BJP-led coalition government in Goa.

He is the senior-most minister in the government, and was a member of the Cabinet Advisory Committee set up by Parrikar before he had left for USA.

His brother Dipak Dhavalikar was a minister in the previous Laxmikant Parsekar-led state government.
