Tal Yehoshua Koren, wife of Israeli defence attaché, who was undergoing treatment at the Primus Super Speciality Hospital here for injuries sustained in a car blast earlier this week, was discharged on Friday.

“We had received a communication from the Embassy officials asking if she could be discharged. We agreed as her condition had improved and she was recovering well. She was discharged around 4.30 p.m. She had plans to leave for her country,” said Arun Bhanot, who headed the team of doctors treating her.

Ms. Koren, who is also an embassy official, was brought to the hospital on Monday night and operated upon to remove shrapnels from the spine that was causing pressure to build up there. She had also sustained injuries to spine, liver and lungs.

Dr. Bhanot said the diplomat was very cooperative during treatment. “She was very cheerful and grateful for the treatment she received here.”
