Barclays stated Venkatakrishnan will undergo treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, with his condition labelled as being curable with the hospital's prescribed regimen.

"The board has been kept apprised of my situation and I am enormously grateful for their support," said Venkatakrishnan.
