Bangalore: Legendary singer Manna Dey is admitted to a hospital in Bangalore with chest infection, said reports on Sunday morning. His condition is reported to be stable but critical.
The veteran singer, who turned 94 on May 1, was reportedly under medical supervision at his home but was shifted to the hospital on Saturday after his condition deteriorated.
