The liver has stopped working and both the kidneys may stop working anytime. His condition is critical and we are doing our best to save him. Chandrasekhar is not responding to the treatment. He may go into Coma, he said.
Chandrashekar’s Brother Nagaraj said, “After the missing of the fishing boat Suvarna Tribhuja Chandrashekar had gone into depression. He was not taking food properly and was even not speaking to anyone. When the news appeared in the media that the Navy had found the wreckage of the missing boat he was shocked. Three days ago he had consumed poison and did not inform anyone in the house about it. Two days ago we had admitted him to the Bhatkal hospital where we came to know that he has Jaundice. Immediately we brought him to Udupi for treatment”, he said.
