Guwahati: Veteran musician and singer Bhupen Hazarika was on dialysis for the 3rd consecutive day on Thursday at the ICU of Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai although the hospital authorities said that his health was showing signs of improvement.
“He has not been taken off from dialysis but several indicators have shown that his health has improved by five per cent. However, he is still weak and fully on machine support,” said the hospital’s media relations in-charge Jayanta Narayan Saha.
The iconic singer from the state also continues to be on liquid diet fed through a food pipe, the media relations official said.
“Doctors are saying that a clear picture of his health condition would be available only after two to three days,” he added.
Hazarika’s family members, comprising his sister Sudhakhina Sarma and sister-in-law Manisha Hazarika, are at the hospital.
