Gopal Rai discharged from hospital


Delhi Transport minister Gopal Rai who recently underwent an operation for removal of a bullet lodged in his neck for past 17 years was discharged from the hospital this evening.

“The minister has been discharged and he will go to a branch of the same hospital in Hyderabad for further treatment possibly in the coming week,” a close aide of the minister said. The bullet was removed successfully from the minister’s neck in a surgery performed on April 6.

Rai had suffered a gun shot injury in 1999 during an agitation against criminalisation of students politics at Allahabad University. He had recovered after a long treatment but the bullet was still lodged in the body.

The reserves stood at $329.71 billion at the end of July, up $3.27 billion from June, the Bank of Korea said in a statement, attributing the rise to management gains and the appreciation of the euro in July, which the Bank of Korea said was up 1.8 percent against the dollar last month.
