THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Administrative Reforms Commission Chairman and former Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan, who had been hospitalised on Thursday following physical uneasiness, was discharged on Friday. His condition is better and he has been asked to take three days’ house rest, officials said.

“He’s much better now. However, he has been asked to take rest for three more days,” said Dr Bharat Chandran, Achuthanandan’s personal doctor.
