The Israeli defence attache's wife who was injured in a car blast here a day earlier was stable on Tuesday, doctors said. She has been operated upon and shrapnel removed from her spine.
A surgery on her spinal cord was performed Monday night, said doctors at Delhi's Primus Hospital where she is admitted.
"The patient is stable now, a surgery was conducted and she is conscious now," medical superintendent of Primus Hospital N.D. Khurana said.
"We will decide the course of treatment after a meeting of a group of doctors," he said.
Tal Yehoshua Koren, wife of the Israeli defence attache, was injured Monday afternoon after a terror attack targeting the embassy car she was travelling in.
Arun Bhanot, who is heading the team of doctors treating her, said major shrapnel from her spine had been removed, but more remain in her body.
"There are multiple metal objects in her body, in the liver, lungs and spinal cord," Bhanot told reporters.
"The major shrapnel was in her spinal cord, which was causing pressure on the nerves and had cut one of the nerves," he said.
"That shrapnel has been removed, she may start showing improvement."
