Srinagar: All Parties Hurriyat Conference chief Syed Ali Geelani was on Sunday discharged from SK Institute of Medical Sciences Soura.
Geelani, 88, was admitted to the tertiary care health facility on the 13th of this month. He had complained of abdominal cramps, dehydration and generalised weakness.
Doctors looking after his health said that Geelani underwent many tests including that of haemoglobin, heart, chest and kidney.
“All tests are normal,” he said, “but a cyst was removed from his intestines during colonoscopy on Saturday. The cyst has been sent for medical examination.”
The haemoglobin count of Gellani’s blood had been declining since the last six months.
“He was discharged from the hospital today after his health showed improvement,” the doctor informed.
Early in the day, senior resistance leader and Valley’s chief cleric, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, visited Geelani at SKIMS and prayed for his speedy recovery.
Sources in the Hurriyat Conference said that a team of intelligence sleuths was stationed outside the room for all these days when Geelani remained admitted in SKIMS at Soura.
Geelani’s two sons, eldest son-in-law and few members of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat accompanied him at the hospital.
