Sonia returns to India after treatment in US

New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi returned to India after treatment in US for over a month. Sonia reached New Delhi at 3 am on Thursday morning and was accompanied by her daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

The 64-year-old Congress President underwent surgery for an undisclosed illness at a US hospital on August 4.

"Congress President returned early today and she is fine," party general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi said.

10 Janpath sources said she is not meeting anyone.

Immediately after her departure on August 2, Congress had made a brief announcement saying Gandhi had been recently diagnosed with a medical condition and was advised surgery.

The Congress President had handed over reins of the party to a group of four comprising Rahul Gandhi and senior leaders AK Antony, Ahmed Patel and Dwivedi.

Rahul had recently returned to India after attending to his ailing mother.
