RALEGAN SIDDHI: Activist Anna Hazare Saturday returned to his native village Ralegan Siddhi in Ahmednagar district after a 15-day spell of treatment in Bangalore, an associate said.

"Anna returned to Ralegan Siddhi tonight (Saturday). He was at Jindal Naturecure Institute in Bangalore, where he was being treated by naturopathy. He also went there to get some rest," Hazare's associate Anil Sharma told IANS.

Hazare was accompanied by his key aide, Arvind Kejriwal.

Team Anna core committee member Kiran Bedi also expressed her gladness over Hazare's discharge from the nature care centre.

"Anna finally discharged. Off all medicines. Doing quite well nw. BP stable. Will rch Ralegan by evening!," Bedi tweeted.

Hazare, 74, who is leading a campaign for a strong Lokpal Bill, has been unwell for some time.

He was lodged at the Bangalore nature care centre since Jan 30. On Jan 29, he went to New Delhi for a check-up at the Medanta hospital after he complained of swelling and chest pain.

Hazare was admitted to a hospital in Pune in December 2011 after breaking his fast in Mumbai as he suffered from chest infection.
