A hospital official said that around 2.10am today, nuns from the convent arrived with an ambulance and a car and submitted an application to the nurse on duty, seeking the release of the elderly lady.

The nuns were accompanied by S. Monica Joseph, the superior-general of the Congregation of the Religious of Jesus and Mary stationed in Rome, sub-divisional officer Rajarshi Mitra and sub-divisional police officer Indrajit Basu.

"A gynaecologist, Sanchita Roy, examined her and found her fit to travel," a hospital official said.
