New Delhi, Oct 29 Environmentalist Sunita Narain, critically injured over a week ago after a speeding car hit her when she was riding a bicycle, is likely to be discharged from the hospital soon, a statement said Tuesday.

"She is fully conscious and communicating well. A corrective surgery has been performed on her nose. Doctors are hopeful of discharging her from the hospital soon," the statement by an NGO Centre for Science and Environment said.
