Jagjit Singh's condition still critical: Doctor

By Hindustan Times

Ghazal singer Jagjit Singh, 70, who was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at Lilavati hospital after he suffered a brain haemorrhage on Friday, continued to remain in a critical condition on Sunday.

“Singh’s condition is still critical but has not worsened,” said Dr Ajit Menon, cardiologist, who is Singh’s doctor.

“There was a clot in his brain. The surgeons had to decompress the brain to remove the clot,” said Dr Menon. Dr Nitin Dange, consulting neurosurgeon conducted the surgery late Friday night.

The singer was suffering from high blood pressure, a major cause for brain haemorrhages. In 2007, Singh had been hospitalised following blood circulation issues. He had also suffered a heart attack in 1998.
