External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was on Sunday discharged from AIIMS nearly three weeks after she was admitted to the hospital with complaints of chest congestion and fever.

AIIMS director M C Mishra said Swaraj was discharged after a group of doctors examined her and found her to be fit.

“Swaraj was being treated for pneumonia and the infection had also caused mild renal impairment. She was treated by a group of specialists and was discharged after the doctors declared her fit,” Mishra said.

The 64-year-old Union minister was admitted to AIIMS on April 25 after she complained of chest congestion and fever. She was undergoing treatment in the Cardio-Neuro Centre of the hospital.

The doctors had earlier said that it was likely that she contracted the infection due to extreme temperatures during her travels.
