Jagathy not being shifted to CMC Vellore
Veteran Malayalam film actor Jagathy Sreekumar, being treated at a private hospital here after his March 10 accident, will not be shifted to CMC hospital, Vellore today as he has slight fever, doctors said.
The plan was to shift Sreekumar in an air-ambulance from nearby Karippur International Airport, but that has been postponed as he is down with fever, sources at Malabar Institute of Medical Sciences (MIMS) hospital here said. Sreekumar will be kept under observation for the next two days.
A three-member doctors' team from CMC had assessed the actor's condition some days back and also expressed their satisfaction over his recovery. Sreekumar was seriously injured when the car in which he was travelling to Kodagu in Karnataka for shooting Malayalam film 'Idavapathy' slammed into a road median and overturned at nearby Tenhippalam in Malappuram district on March 10 and has undergone various surgeries.
Leader of the Opposition V S Achuthanandan had yesterday visited the actor and also met his relatives. PTI
