Dilip Kumar’s younger brother Aslam Khan passed away in Lilavati hospital today. He was tested positive of Covid -19. He was also suffering from diabetes, hypertension and ischaemic heart disease.
Both brothers Aslam and Ehsan Khan were admitted to the hospital after they complained of breathlessness. Their oxygen saturation had dropped below 80 per cent.
According to a report Dr Jalil Parker from Lilavati Hospital, who had treated the brothers, said, “They have been kept in ICU but we haven’t intubated them as yet. Considering their age and pre-condition health issues like diabetes and hypertension, we have to be extra careful while treating them.”
Ehsan Khan (90) is still in critical condition.
Earlier, veteran actor Dilip Kumar had written a poem on Twitter requesting fans to stay indoors and stay safe from coronavirus.
