The condition of former cricketer Maninder Singh, who was admitted to hospital after a suspected suicide bid, is improving but police is yet to record his statement.
"Maninder is responding to treatment and he is still in the intensive care unit. But he is unfit for making a statement," hospital sources said.
Police officials went to the hospital to meet the former left-arm spinner, but doctors advised one more day's rest for him. "We could not talk to him to find out what had happened," a senior police official said.
His statement is expected to be recorded tomorrow, the official added.
Maninder was rushed to the hospital in the wee hours of yesterday with mysterious cuts in his wrists which police suspects sustained in a suicide attempt, a possibility denied by his family.
His wife Maili had said that Maninder was injured when a glass window pane at his residence broke while he was banging it to wake up the family members after coming home late at night.
Police have taken the blood samples of Maninder to ascertain whether he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Maninder's surprise hospitalisation came a fortnight after he was arrested with 1.5 grams of cocaine from near his residence in east Delhi. Police had claimed that he resorted to drugs because of family problems.
