By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, AUG. 14. The condition of cartoonist and Malayalam writer O.V. Vijayan, who was admitted to the Care Hospitals here on Tuesday, is stated to be critical.

According to Mr. Vijayan's nephew and cardiologist in the same hospital, Uday, the writer was brought to the hospital with chest infection. The 74-year-old Vijayan was already weak with Parkinson's disease and his condition deteriorated soon. He also suffered from an attack of pneumonia.

"He has been put on ventilator. We can say something only after he starts breathing on his own. As of now, his condition is critical," Dr. Uday said.
