New Delhi: Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) last Saturday, has been discharged, an official from the hospital said.

The former prime minister had complained chest pain and problem in breathing, sources said. Singh was also tested for the novel coronavirus and his results were negative.


Singh was brought to the AIIMS at 8.45 p.m. on Saturday. The former Prime Minister was subjected to several medical tests, including the one to determine whether he was infected with the deadly coronavirus. He is under the supervision of Nitish Nayak.

In 2009, Singh underwent a successful coronary by-pass surgery at AIIMS, a complex beating-heart operation that took nearly 14 hours.
