Hyderabad, Sep 16 Former Indian cricket captain and Lok Sabha member Mohammed Azharuddin's son Mohammed Ayazuddin, who was critically injured in a motorbike accident five days ago, passed away at a hospital here Friday.
The 19-year-old died at 11.51 a.m. due to hypoxic encephalopathy, said a statement from Apollo Hospital, where the youngster battled for life since Sunday.
The budding cricketer was critically injured in the super bike crash at Puppalaguda on Outer Ring Road of Hyderabad Sep 11. Ayazuddin's cousin Ajmal-ur-Rahman (16), who was pillion riding with him, died a couple of hours after they were taken to the hospital.
The high-end sports bike skidded off the road when Ayazuddin was riding it at a high speed, according to police.
Ayazuddin's mother Naureen, Azharuddin, his second wife Sangeeta Bijlani and other close relatives were at the hospital when the end came.
A pall of gloom descended on Azharuddin's house in Banjara Hills, where the body was later shifted. The burial is scheduled to take place in the evening.
Ayazuddin was the youngest of the two sons of Azharuddin from his first wife Naureen, whom he divorced to marry former actress Sangeeta Bijlani.
Doctors at Apollo Hospital said Ayazuddin was in critical condition and was put on a ventilator ever since he was shifted to the hospital. They said he was brought with cardiac arrest and sustained injuries to kidneys.
The doctors later removed one kidney to stop bleeding. According to a medical bulletin late Thursday, tests conducted on him indicated brain dysfunction.
