Parrikar had been in the US for three months earlier this year for treatment, and had returned in June. He revisited the US for a follow-up earlier this month.

Upon his return from the US on August 22, Parrikar suffered from indigestion resulting in vomiting. He was then rushed to Lilavati hospital, where he is still admitted.On August 27, Goa Chief Minister's Office sent a two-line message about Parrikar returning to Goa from Mumbai. According to that message, Parikar was supposed to return today (August 29).
