East Bengal Assistant Secretary and orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Shanti Ranjan Dasgupta said, “Yes it was indeed a major heart-attack and now under the observance of Dr.Sunip Bandyopadhyay.They will first do the angiogram and then will do the angioplasty accordingly. I heard that he is stable now. But it’s indeed a very bad news.”
