NEW DELHI: Isak Chisi Swu, co-founder of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM), is being treated in New Delhi for kidney ailments, doctors said today.
Mr Swu, 85, was admitted to the Fortis Hospital in south Delhi on July 5 following “severe kidney ailments and urinary tract infection”, a doctor said.
“Swu underwent a surgery last week and is currently in the ICU,” the doctor said.
Refusing to divulge further information, the doctor said Mr Swu would not be discharged until he recovers fully.
A source told IANS that Mr Swu was in Delhi for the last one month and was treated for similar problems earlier also.
“Swu’s two sons, who stay abroad, are also at the hospital,” the source said.
NSCN-IM officials said their leader was diagnosed with urinary tract infection a few years ago.
“His condition deteriorated a few days back but it is improving now, which is a good sign for the entire Naga nation,” said a senior NSCN leader.
Senior NSCN-IM leaders and leaders of social groups in Nagaland have visited Delhi. (agencies)
