Thane: The condition of Pravin Mahajan,
who was admitted in a private hospital here after suffering a
brain haemorrhage, is still in a state of coma, doctors

jail authorities and the state government.

"Pravin has suffered an extensive pontine haemorrhage
(brain haemorrhage). His condition is still critical and he is
deeply unconscious," the doctors said.

Pravin was found guilty of shooting his brother in
Mumbai on April 22, 2006. Pramod succumbed to bullet injuries
12 days later.

He was awarded life imprisonment by a Mumbai court in
December 2007 and lodged at the Nashik Central Jail. He was

medical grounds.
