The 77-year-old actress was admitted to Belle Vue Clinic Oct 9 with high fever and other complaints. Diagnostic tests revealed that she was suffering from urinary tract infection.

She was put on a course of antibiotics that ended Monday, doctors said. "She was being treated with Meronem injection. We have stopped the injections from Monday. She is now much better and is now on oral medication," Bakshi said.

Suchitra, who was one of the most popular Bengali actors in the 1950s and 60s, left the industry in 1978 after a career spanning 25 years and since then has been living in seclusion.
