New Delhi: The condition of former vice chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia University Mushirul Hasan, who met with an accident on Saturday, is still critical.
"He is critical and is under observation. He is being attended by a team of our doctors who are constantly monitoring his condition and giving him the required medical aid," a statement issued by Apollo Hospital, where he is admitted, said today evening.
67-year-old Hasan was on his way to Mewat from Delhi along with two others, at around 11.30 am yesterday when the car they were travelling had a head-on collision with a dumper.
The leading academician had sustained head injuries and was operated by a team of neurosurgeons at the hospital.
Professor Hasan is a noted historian and has written extensively on the partition of India, on communalism, and on the histories of Islam in south Asia.
He served as the vice-chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia University between 2004-2009.
