I got this plant about 20 days back. Watered it scarcely but did spary after 2 3 days. It is losing its leaves, this is the second leaf. Stem becomes mushy brown and really reay stinky. Light conditions were poor but i started putting it in bright indirect suight during the the day. Other aglaonema is thriving in same pot. How do i save/cure this one? And do i need to separate it from orthers?

This looks like something was going on before you bought the plant. There may be hope, by isolating it and never overwatering it.

Trim off any rotted or stinky parts as this is an indication of rot, which can spread.

I wouldn't move it, once you find a good spot for it in bright indirect light (not full sun). These plants are long lived in the right conditions as long as they are kept moist but never soggy.
