New Delhi: Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar returned home on Thursday, over three months after he went to the US for medical treatment.

Parrikar, after being diagnosed with the ailment, was admitted to Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai on 15 February and was discharged on 22 February. He returned to Goa the same day and presented the budget in the assembly, but the session was truncated to only four days owing to his illness.

The chief minister went to Mumbai again on 5 March for his further check up from where he was referred to the US.
He had left for the US on 7 March.
