Post operation update : Bhupen Hazarika may be out of ICU

Guwahati, Aug. 7: Doctors will consider shifting Bhupen Hazarika out of ICU tomorrow, especially after the singer gingerly took a few steps today at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai where he underwent a bypass surgery on Tuesday.

The 83-year-old maestro was assisted out of his bed after which he walked “two rounds” within the ICU with help from doctors.

Surjya Hazarika, a close aide of the singer-composer, said this evening that “Bhupenda was feeling less pain today and the doctors are likely to shift him out of ICU tomorrow. But a final decision will be taken in the morning tomorrow”.

The singer, however, will be kept in hospital for at least a week before he can be declared fit to return home.
