Ali Dar said that his father is undergoing cervical nerve root innervations under anesthesia in London.

“We drove to Nuffield Health Hospital this morning where he (Ishaq Dar) got admitted. Currently, he is under anesthesia and the procedure is underway. He will probably be shifted to a room in another 2 hours,” said Ali Dar.

He said the doctors will continue to monitor his father and advise further action plan later on. In 2017, Dar went to London to receive medical treatment for his heart condition; he has remained in the UK eversince.
