“He had chest discomfort today and he is taken to Apollo today. Dr Saptarshi Basu and Dr Saroj Mondal are attending. Dr Aftab Khan will do the stenting tomorrow in presence of Dr Devi Shetty,” Woodlands Hospital said.
“Sourav Ganguly, 48 years old, male has come for a checkup of his cardiac condition. There is no change in his parameters since his last hospitalisation and his vital parameters are stable,” Apollo hospital had said earlier.


The former India captain had spent five days at the hospital before he was discharged after the doctors termed him clinically fit on January 7.
“Mr Ganguly is clinically fit. He slept well and had his meal. He wanted to stay in the hospital for one more day. So he will go home tomorrow. It is his personal decision,” Dr. Rupali Basu, MD and CEO of Woodlands Hospital had said.
