Mumbai, September 24. The condition of popular ghazal singer Jagjit Singh, who was operated upon at Lilavati Hospital here after suffering brain haemorrhage, continues to be “critical”, said hospital sources. “This is to confirm that Jagjit Singh’s condition remains critical,” Niket V Mehta, managing trustee of Lilavati Hospital, said today.
“We have to respect the patient’s privacy and therefore cannot comment further,” he said. The 70-year-old legend is currently in the ICU after undergoing emergency surgery for brain haemorrhage last evening. Brain hemorrhage is a known complication of uncontrolled hypertension or high blood pressure. (PTI)
