Confirming the news, hospital officials said that the 48-year-old Ganguly’s condition is being monitored by renowned cardiologist Devi Shetty – who flew in to Kolkata earlier in the day — and Aftab Khan.
“Earlier today after several medical tests were done, after which it was decided to implant two more stents to clear Ganguly’s coronary arteries,” a hospital spokesperson said.
West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee visited the former Team India skipper at Apollo Hospital.
