On Tuesday, however, he complained of weakness and was provided immediate medical treatment at home.

Medical check-up revealed low blood pressure and fever, probably due to some infection. Doctors advised him to be hospitalised for a detailed medical check-up.

The 71-year-old scientist was then admitted to a hospital and a team of doctors who had treated him earlier looked after him.

Khan has been under house arrest since early 2004 when he confessed to passing atomic secrets to Iran, North Korea and Libya.
