Raju out of hospital

Special Correspondent



B. Ramalinga Raju

HYDERABAD: Former chairman of Satyam Computers B. Ramalinga Raju, key accused in the multi-crore accounting fraud, was discharged from the Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) here on Saturday. He drove straight from the hospital to his residence on Road No. 36 in Jubilee Hills.

Mr. Raju, who was granted bail by the A. P. High Court on August 18, remained in the hospital where he was undergoing treatment for Hepatitis C. He was discharged from the hospital on personal request, but the doctors at NIMS advised him to come to the hospital once a week for treatment.

The former Satyam chairman was shifted to NIMS from Chanchalguda jail where he was lodged after his confessional statement about the fraud. He had cleared a bill of Rs. 8 lakh on Friday towards the cost incurred on his treatment since his admission in the hospital in September last year.

Doctors said though Mr. Raju had recovered significantly with his liver returning to near normal functioning, he was not fully cured and needed to take about one dozen injections to prevent relapse of Hepatitis C. While in judicial custody, the tainted Satyam chief did not attend hearings in the CBI special court citing health reasons.

He made his appearance only after he was granted bail on the condition that he report to the trial court whenever his cases were posted. The CBI, meanwhile, filed a petition challenging Mr. Raju's bail in the Supreme Court which served notice seeking his reply by October 19.
