Mumbai, April 26
With the condition of BJP General Secretary Pramod Mahajan showing little sign of improvement in the past 48 hours, doctors attending on him are worried about further complications setting in.

Doctors attending on him have so far postponed the surgery to remove the three bullets lodged inside Mahajan's body due to his weakened condition. However, a prolonged delay is exposing the senior BJP leader to risk of infection from his open wounds, according to doctors attending on him at the Hinduja Hospital here.

Mahajan's liver, pancreas and kidneys have been damaged as a result of being shot at by his brother on Saturday last. Though bleeding from these organs has been controlled so far, the wounds on them are exposed and are, therefore, prone to infection, according to doctors here.

Sources say, doctors here are awaiting improvement in Mahajan's vital parameters before further surgery may be attempted on him. Apart from normalizing Mahajan's blood pressure, doctors are also trying to get him to breathe without the aid of a ventilator.

Hinduja Hospital's Director (Administration) Dr Anupam Verma said Mahajan is being administered lower doses of drugs to control his blood pressure.
