Two more Delhi high court blast victims were discharged from Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital on Monday.

Out of the 56 injured victims who were brought to the hospital, eight are undergoing treatment at present.

Rashid Ali (23) who was shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) following post-surgical complication is stable.

"All the remaining victims undergoing treatment are improving well," said a senior doctor, requesting anonymity.

Fifteen victims died in the blast that took place on September 7 near the gate number 5 of the Delhi high court, six of which died while undergoing treatment at the said hospital.

Meanwhile, three blast victims, Tarun Yadav, Nitin and Krishna Kumar Gupta, have requested the authorities to increase their compensation from Rs10,000 to Rs1,00,000 as their injuries are not minor.
