Former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda was hurt in his right leg after he slipped and fell in the bathroom of his house.
The 85-year-old Janta Dal leader has been facing difficulty in walking, his personal assistant said today.
Deve Gowda's son Dr Ramesh dropped by to check on him. He was taken to a hospital near his home today.
Doctors at the hospital said that it was only a sprain in his right knee and nothing serious.
