    New Delhi (PTI): A coronary bypass surgery on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh began on Saturday during which doctors will replace three older grafts performed on him in 1990. (Latest report said that one graft was successfully performed on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who is undergoing bypass surgery at AIIMS, according toDr Sudhir Vaishnav.)

    The surgery on the 76-year-old leader at AIIMS is understood to have begun at around 7 a.m. and is expected to last for several hours, hospital sources said.

    Singh, who has a history of heart ailments which have included a bypass surgery 18 years ago and an angioplasty six years ago, was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here on Friday.
