New Delhi: An Israeli diplomat's wife, injured in a car bombing attack here, was "discharged on request" on Friday from a private hospital, doctors said. She is likely to go back to Israel for further treatment.

"She (Tal Yehoshua Koren) has been discharged on request. She said she wanted to be with her family and we decided to discharge her after examining her medical condition," N.D Khurans, medical superintendent at the Primus Hospital said.

Koren, wife of the Israeli defence attache, suffered multiple injuries on Monday when a motorcycle rider attached a magnetic explosive device to her car and sped away. Within seconds, the device exploded with a thunderous sound, setting the car on fire.

As she left the hospital, Koren was accompanied by a team of doctors who had come from Israel and would be taking over the course of treatment ahead.

Doctors had earlier conducted a surgery to remove from Karen's spine the shrapnel that had injured a nerve, causing weakness in her left leg."The team of doctors has taken complete responsibility of taking her back home and carrying ahead the treatment," Khurana added.
