Pejawar Mutt seer Vishveshwa Teertha Swami has been admitted to KMC Manipal Hospital after he complained of respiratory problems since 5 am on Friday morning.

"He is currently serious and connected to a ventilator. He is being treated for extensive Pneumonia with antibiotics and supportive treatment," the hospital said in a statement.

Doctors are treating blocks in the respiratory system due to cough. It is said that the seer is responding to the treatment.

The 88-year-old pontiff is likely to be treated at the hospital for another two days, said sources in the Mutt. "He will be under observation for 24 hours," a person close to Swami said. 

Swami is suspected to be suffering from pneumonia. He was suffering from fever from the last three days, following which he went to the doctor on Thursday. However, today morning he fell unconscious and he was taken to the hospital. 

P C Anand, Personal Secretary of Pejawar seer, has enquired about Swami's health condition from the doctors.

Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and Union Home Minister Amit Shah are likely to visit Udipi tomorrow to meet Swami.
