A team of doctors, having examined him thoroughly, decided to discharge him from the hospital as the infection in his chest has almost cleared and was fine now, he said.

However, the doctors advised Badal to refrain from vigorous travelling and exposure to intense cold.

The doctors have also advised him to take rest and maintain restriction over the entry of visitors calling on him to inquire about his well being as a precautionary measure.

Badal had taken ill when he was on a visit to Nawanshahr and was shifted to PGIMER from a hospital there on 22 January.
