According to him, his condition is stable and can be released from the hospital after a day. The board conducted an ECG and found no abnormality in the functioning of his heart. A blood sugar test conducted today was normal. The lipid profile test have been done and he is responding well to treatment, a member of the medical board said.

Earlier, the hospital shifted him out of the ICU, after the medical board concluded that he was not likely to suffer any cardiac arrest.
