According the hospital sources, Raju requested the hospital authorities to discharge him on Oct 1.
"He made a request yesterday. He still has to be administered 11 injections as part of the treatment. However, the risk is much less now. His lever is functioning normally," informed a doctor of the hospital.
Raju, who was granted bail by the Andhra Pradesh High Court in Aug, was admitted in NIMS in Dec 2009 for Hepatitis-c treatment.
