She was suffering from lung infection.
Sadhana Gupta was the mother of Prateek Yadav and mother-in-law of BJP leader Aparna Yadav. Sadhna Gupta also had fever for a few days. That is why he was admitted to Medanta Hospital in Gurugram.
The name of the first wife of Mulayam Singh Yadav was Malti Devi. Akhilesh Yadav is the son of Malti and Mulayam Singh. Sadhna Gupta was the second wife of Mulayam Singh Yadav. She was originally from Vidhuna in Auraiya. Her first marriage was with Chandraprakash Gupta of Farrukhabad in the year 1986. After marriage, Sadhna gave birth to a son, Prateek, but she was not married to her husband, so she got divorced. Later Sadhna Gupta married Mulayam Singh. Sadhna was 20 years younger than Mulayam Singh. They also have a son Prateek Yadav. Sadhna Gupta was the stepmother of former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav.
In Akhilesh Yadav's biography 'Badlav ki lehar', it is mentioned that Mulayam Singh Yadav's mother Murti Devi was often ill. At that time it was Sadhna Gupta who took care of her. Once during treatment, a nurse was going to give wrong injection to Murti Devi, after which Sadhna stopped that nurse. When Mulayam came to know about this, he was impressed by her and their relationship started.
