51-year-old Sidhu was admitted to the hospital with acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a life threatening condition if not treated in time.

DVT is caused by a blood clot in a deep vein which hinders the normal blood flow. The symptoms may include swelling, pain, and tenderness, often in the legs.

Sidhu has been a two-time former MP from Amritsar constituency in Punjab.
