The senior Congress leader was admitted to RML on Wednesday afternoon, but a doctor did not confirm the time.

"He was brought to the hospital in the afternoon and is currently admitted. There is nothing to worry as it was a minor brain haemorrhage," said the doctor on the condition of anonymity.

The 76-year-old former Kerala Chief Minister remained the long serving Defence Minister during the United Progressive Alliance government.

Doctors said that Antony will remain in the hospital for next two-three days after which he will be discharged.
