NEW DELHI: The Dalai Lama has been admitted to hospital in New Delhi for treatment but is “doing much better” and should be released soon, his close aide told AFP on Wednesday. “His Holiness is doing much better, but he is still undergoing treatment at a hospital and we hope in few days he will be discharged,” Tenzin Taklha, the Dalai Lama’s personal spokesman, told AFP.

Another aide told AFP the 83-year-old Buddhist monk flew to the Indian capital early Tuesday for a doctor’s visit at Max hospital after he experienced a “light cough.” “The doctor said there’s nothing to worry about. It’s not that serious,” said Ngodup Tsering, the Dalai Lama’s representative in the United States. “He’s taking a few days’ rest.” Kangra police superintendent Santosh Patial told The Indian Express that the Dalai Lama took a regular morning flight on Tuesday and was not airlifted.
