New Delhi, May 10 (IANS) Ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh has undergone heart surgery at the Escorts hospital here, a doctor said Saturday.

According to sources at the Escorts Heart Institute and Research Centre, the singer came to the hospital earlier this week with chest pain. "He has undergone surgery and is recovering fast," a senior doctor said.
