Former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh was hospitalised this night after he complained of fever and weakness.
He has been admitted to the All India Institute Of Medical Sciences within the city.
Earlier this year, the 88-year-old Congress veteran and Rajya Sabha member had been admitted to hospital after he tested positive for Covid-19 during the second wave of infections.
