Malayalam film actor Jagathy
Sreekumar is recovering well after three operations to fix
fractures on his hand, leg and hip following the March 10
accident, doctors attending on him said.
"The operations to fix fractures on the right hip, right
thigh and right foream were completed successfully by 6 PM
yesterday after a seven-hour long operation," Dr Abdullah

when his car slammed into a road median at nearby Tenhipalam
last Saturday and overturned.

to the hospital and thousands of people who had prayed for the
early recovery of the veteran actor, who has acted in over
Innocent, President of Association of Malayalam Movie
Artists and actor Vijayaraghavan were among those visited
Sreekumar at the hospital yesterday.
