Hospital staff said that the patient's condition is critical.
They added that Ayub completed all the rituals in the hospital and the newly married couple was blessed by the relatives and hospital staff.
Dr Ankush Bhargava of the hospital said that the patient was earlier admitted in a Nagpur hospital, but was brought by his family to Krish hospital due to the high cost of treatment at the previous hospital.
