Music composer Wajid Khan - of the renowned composer duo Sajid-Wajid breathed his last on June 1 at the age of 42. He was reportedly said to be on the ventilator for the past few days.
Now, the recent reports suggest that Wajid Khan had undergone a kidney transplant a few months ago and it was Sajid Khan's wife who had donated her kidney to him. However, the reports also suggested that his body rejected the transplanted organ and he was admitted to the hospital post kidney infection. Now, another report states that he was also tested positive for coronavirus.
A Peepingmoon report suggests that the music composer contracted Coronavirus from his mother. It was his mother, brother Sajid and his wife, who were taking care of Wajid Khan for the past two months as he went in and out of the hospital.
His mother, who showed no symptoms for Coronavirus but was positive, visited him daily. That's how he is said to have contracted Coronavirus, but by the time doctors understood his condition, it was too late. With all these complications, Wajid Khan died of cardiac arrest in a hospital in Chembur, stated the report.
Meanwhile, a report in Bombay Times quoted Salim Merchant who rubbished the reports of Wajid Khan dying of Coronavirus.
"We all know that he was sick and unwell for a while now but still his demise was a complete shocker. Wajid did not die of COVID-19. There have been false news floating around since last night. It is very sad that his kidney infection got worse and it got the better of him ultimately. He had multiple problems, it went to his throat, he was a diabetic and he had other health problems too that he finally succumbed to,” he said.
However, as per a report in ABP, the music composer's death certificate mentioned Coronavirus and Kidney failure as the cause of his death.
Just a day after the death of Wajid Khan, his mother Razina Khan has tested positive for the coronavirus. She has been admitted to Mumbai's Surana Hospital in Chembur where the late music composer was also undergoing treatment.
