Kathmandu, Sept 13: Health condition of UCPN (Maoist) Vice Chairman Posta Bahadur Bogati is critical but stable, according to doctors involved in his treatment. He is under observation of a medical team comprising neurologists Dr Basanta Panta, Pankaj Jalan and Yadav Dev Bhatta and the team will decide whether he needs treatment abroad only Monday morning after studying his situation this night.
Doctors involved in his treatment and party top leaders discussed whether he should be taken abroad for further treatment, party Spokesperson Dinanath Sharma said. Leader Bogati was hospitalised after he suffered a cardiac arrest and stroke on Thursday night. Simultaneous heart attack and stroke has made the situation critical, according to Dr Bhatta. Doctors are finding difficulties to conduct a surgery of his brain, which is found to have suffered a blood clot.
