The condition of popular ghazal singer Jagjit Singh, who operated upon at Lilavati Hospital here after suffering brain haemorrhage, continues to be "critical", said the hospital.

"This is to confirm that Mr Jagjit Singh's condition remains critical," Niket V Mehta, Managing Trustee of Lilavati Hospital, said in a statement here today.

"We have to respect the patient's privacy and therefore cannot comment further," he said.

The 70-year-old legend is currently in the ICU after undergoing emergency surgery for brain haemorrhage last evening.

Brain hemorrhage is a known complication of uncontrolled hypertension or high blood pressure.

In January 1998, Singh had suffered a heart attack, which led him to quit smoking. In October 2007, he was hospitalised following blood circulation problems.
