Azharuddin's son in very critical condition

September 12, 2011 13:45 IST

The condition of Ayazuddin, son of former Indian cricket captain and Moradabad Member of Parliament Mohammad Azharuddin, who was grievously injured in a mishap in Hyderabad, continues to be "very critical" for the second day on Monday.

According to a medical bulletin issued by Apollo Hospital, where he is undergoing treatment, "The patient (Ayazuddin) continues to be in a very critical condition and is currently on a ventilator. He has multi-organ failure and is being supported with medication and other treatment to maintain his vital functions".

"The prognosis and outcome are guarded due to the severity of the injury and continued instability," said the bulletin, issued at 11 am.

A specialist team of doctors are working round-the-clock to ensure the best medical care possible to the 19-year-old who was injured in a motorbike accident on Sunday.

Azharuddin, who flew in from London in the wee hours of Monday, is in the hospital with his family members.

Ayazuddin sustained serious injuries while his 16-year-old cousin Ajmaan died in the accident that took place on the city's outskirts.

According to the police, the mishap occurred around 9 am near the Puppalguda toll gate on Outer Ring Road when the Suzuki Sports Bike, which Ayazuddin and Ajmaan were riding, skidded.

Ayazuddin is the former cricketer's son with his first wife Naureen.
