"The piece of cloth was detected in her stomach after she underwent ultrasound and CT scan at Kailash Hospital in Noida. On June 28, we admitted her to Max Hospital in Saket, Delhi, and she underwent surgery on June 30 to remove the cloth. Her legs and hands have swollen due to infection and according to doctors she will be kept under observation for the next few days", her husband Amul Bhargava said.
