Anna Hazare was not billed for his four-day treatment at a Gurgaon hospital, an aide said Thursday.

The 74-year-old social reformer was admitted to the Medanta Medicity hospital Sunday shortly after he broke his 288-hour fast in support of a strong Lokpal bill.

A day after he left for his home in Maharashtra, an India Against Corruption (IAC) member told IANS, "He was not charged for his treatment at Medanta Medicity."

Hazare "is totally fine now", the activist added.

Hundreds had offered to pay his bills but the hospital decided otherwise. He was under the medical supervision of cardiologist Naresh Trehan.

Hazare, whose hunger strike against corruption ignited a virtual mass movement across India, reached his village Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra Thursday.
