Captain Lakshmi Sehgal, a compatriot of Subhash Chandra Bose, who was admitted to hospital yesterday following a cardiac arrest, still continued to be in "very critical" condition, family sources said.

"Sehgal's condition is very critical. There has been no significant improvement," Sehgal's daughter Subhashini Ali told reporters in Kanpur on Friday.


She has been placed in ICU and is under observation by a team of doctors, Ali added.

Sehgal (97), who was ill for some time, was admitted to hospital last morning after she suffered a heart attack at her residence in Civil Lines area in Kanpur.

Meanwhile, CPI(M) general secretary Prakash Karat and CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat had visited the hospital on Thursday to enquire about her health conditions.

Captain Lakshmi Sehgal was very active in the independence movement of India and commanded the 'Rani of Jhansi Regiment' of INA, formed by Subhash Chandra Bose.

A doctor by profession, she was working as a medical practitioner and a social worker. She was awarded Padma Vibhushan in 1998.
