Guwahati: Jnanpith award winning Assamese litterateur Indira (Mamoni) Raisom Goswami's condition on Saturday turned 'very critical' and was put on ventilator support.

"Goswami's condition has been very critical and she was put on 80 per cent ventilator support since this evening," Assam Health Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarmah told reporters after visiting her at the hospital.

Goswami, who has been undergoing treatment at Guwahati Medical College and Hospital, was shifted to Intensive Care Unit on Wednesday and her condition worsened further after she suffered a brain haemorrage today, doctors said.

Her blood pressure has also fallen considerably, sources said.

Goswami was admitted to GMCH on February 12 after she went into coma following severe lung infection caused by multi-lateral pnuemonia and was later shifted to a super speciality hospital in Gurgaon.

She was shifted back to GMCH in July after her condition improved marginally though she continued to be in a state of unconsciousness.
