The condition of Gujarat Vishwa Hindu Parishad general secretary Jaideep Patel, who was shot by two unidentified gunmen on Tuesday, is stable.
He is admitted at a private hospital in Ahmedabad.
"At present Patel is completely stable. He is being examined thoroughly and will be operated upon by plastic, neuro, ENT [Ear, Nose and Throat] and Ophthalmology surgeons on Wednesday afternoon," Dr V N Shah said.
Patel had been struck by bullet in the "skull base". �It did not cause any complications but would have to be removed through multiple surgery,� Shah said.
Security has been beefed up in the city and the state government has announced a reward of Rs 50,000 for providing clues about the assailants.
