Bengali actor and Trinamool Congress MP Nusrat Jahan, who was admitted to the ICU of a hospital following respiratory distress on Sunday (Nov 17) night, was discharged on Monday (Nov 18) evening, sources close to her said, dismissing reports of drug overdose as "rumours".
Nusrat was taken to the hospital at around 9.30 p.m. on Sunday with breathing problem. A medical team was formed for her treatment, reports said.
"She is stable and conscious," a source said.
"She has an asthma problem and uses inhaler. But the problem became a bit serious on Sunday, and using inhaler was not enough. She is completely fine now," the source told a news agency.
According to the hospital, she was released on Monday evening after her condition improved.
About speculation going around since the morning, the source close to the actor said: "We know there are such rumours, and we have already rejected them on behalf of the family."
The source said Nusrat's husband Nikhil Jain was in the hospital since Sunday night. On Sunday, the couple had celebrated Jain's birthday. Nusrat had posted on instagram a photo of their celebrations.
After Nusrat was admitted to the ICU, reports started floating around that she either had a drug overdose, a drug allergy or had consumed a large number of sleeping pills.
