“He was not talking since yesterday and was sleeping more than he usually does. He underwent a sugar test and we are waiting for the report,” a family member said. “We took him to the hospital for a regular check-up,” he added.
According to an official at the hospital, the former Indian football coach was admitted to the general ward and undergoing some tests.
The condition of Banerjee, who is also having some nerve-related illness, was stable, he said.
