Guwahati: Assam heartthrob Zubeen Garg is gradually recovering, except for a mild body weakness, sources close to his attending doctors said on Monday morning.

Earlier on Saturday, as per sources from Nemcare Hospital, it was informed that Garg got a few stitches on his tongue as both the sides of the artiste’s teeth remained closed as he fell to the ground after fainting. It has also been said that the singer got hurt on his neck and hand as he was pulled by his fans to the emergency unit of the hospital. However, the hospital authorities have said that his health condition is stable and he is recovering fast.
