Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan’s sister-in-law Mazish (38) succumbed to suspected dengue at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital Friday. She had been admitted to the hospital Thursday after being diagnosed with low platelet count. She died around 6.30 am.

However, the platelet count reduced to around 11,000. In the morning, she succumbed to dengue,” said the AAP MLA. Mazish’s 11-year old daughter Nabiha too has been admitted to the hospital with low platelet count.
