The Early Signs of Disease

Arun Bali’s close friend Nupur claimed in an earlier interview with ETimes that she had noticed something “majorly wrong” with Bali’s speech. She also attempted to get in touch with his son Ankush, but she was unsuccessful. Arun Bali’s coworker was eventually contacted, and she requested that he take Arun to the hospital.

“I noticed a serious problem with Arun Bali sir’s speech while we were on call and informed him of it. After that, I attempted to reach his son Ankush but was unsuccessful. Then I called Ankush’s colleague Rajeev Menon and got his other number, and I told him to take Arun Sir to the hospital right away,” she was reported as saying.
