New Delhi: Raju Srivastava’s condition has deteriorated. Since last night, the stand-up comedian has been in a very fragile and critical condition. Raju’s blood pressure had sharply dropped yesterday evening; it has since stabilised, but the overall state of affairs has gotten worse.

According to ETimes, Dr Padma Srivastava who was presently in Kolkata has been summoned and is now taking a flight from Kolkata to Delhi. Raju Srivastava’s nephew, Kushal, said, “We are hoping and praying for a miracle. Yes, Dr Padma Srivastava is flying to Delhi from Kolkata, she should be here by this evening. As we speak, Raju ji’s condition has become very critical.”

A room has now been booked by Raju Srivastav’s immediate family in the hospital where other relatives can even stay overnight.

Raju Srivastava had collapsed while he was running on a treadmill on August 10; he has been unconscious for the last eight days except for a few moments of a slight stir in his feet when his wife touched his head at the behest of the doctors, else sources now tell ETimes TV that even an MRI was ruled out.
