Kolkata: Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's nephew Abhishek Banerjee was released Monday evening from the hospital where he was under treatment following a road accident earlier this month.
The medical board constituted to look after Banerjee's condition took the decision to release him after a check-up, a senior official at the hospital said.
According to an earlier bulletin issued in the morning by Belle Vue Clinic, where the TMC youth wing president underwent a surgery for an "orbital floor fracture", he was allowed free mobilisation and a normal diet from today.
"Banerjee needs to come back to the hospital again for another round of check-up. The doctors have prescribed him complete rest for two weeks," the official said.
Banerjee's car had met with an accident on National Highway-2, near Singur, in Hooghly district on October 18. A 12-member team of surgeons had conducted the surgery a week later on October 25.
