    Mumbai: Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad on Wednesday underwent an over six-hour-long cardiac surgery at a hospital here.

    Lalu underwent AVR-aortic valve replacement, aortic repair and repair of a 3mm hole in the heart during the surgery, which lasted for six hours and 15 minutes, according to a statement from Asian Heart Institute.

    The former Bihar chief minister was diagnosed with 'aortic stenosis', and was admitted to the Asian Heart Institute here on Monday.

    Institute head Dr Ramakanta Panda, who had operated on former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh five years ago, said the decision to perform the surgery followed a series of medical tests and evaluation on the 66-year-old leader.

    Meanwhile, RJD leaders and legislators and well-wishers conducted 'hawan' and special prayers at party headquarters in Patna, for his speedy recovery.
