“The chief secretary has suffered a minor brain haemorrhage. We are managing him conservatively through medicines. His condition is stable,” said Dr Ambuj Kumar, director and head of department of neurosurgery at the hospital.

“He complained of uneasiness and headache last evening after a fall in the bathroom of his residence in the morning. A CT scan has revealed minor brain haemorrhage. We have put him under observation and he may require three days of stay at the hospital.” added Dr Kumar.

The hospital had also done a cardiac evaluation on Subhani while the physicians examined him for fever, after he was admitted to the Paras hospital around 10pm on Thursday.

“We have sent his samples for confirmatory test after he tested positive for typhoid initially. We suspect he could be suffering from viral fever,” a doctor attending on the CS said.

Subhani had tested negative for dengue.
