Family To Donate Eyes & Kidney Of 24-Yr-Old Victim Of Bhubaneswar Hit-&-Run Case
Bhubaneswar: Family of the woman, who succumbed to critical injuries sustained in October 31 hit-and-run case at Power House Chhak in Bhubaneswar, has decided to donate her eyes and kidney.
Lopamudra Sahoo (24) died while undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Cuttack city on Friday.
She was riding pillion with her relative, a retired CISF jawan Kanhucharan Nayak, when the speeding Range Rover hit their motorcycle and flung the duo into the air. Lopamudra sustained head injuries in the accident and she along with Kanhucharan were rescued by police and admitted to Capital Hospital here.
The woman was later shifted to the SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack and subsequently to a private hospital in the city as her condition deteriorated. She, however, succumbed to her injuries during treatment in the ICU of the private hospital.
Kanhucharan’s condition is also stated to be critical.
Though police have arrested the driver of the SUV, it is being alleged that attempts are being made to suppress the case since the vehicle with registration number OD-23K 0006 reportedly belongs to a company in which Bishal Kumar Das, the son of former Odisha minister Late Naba Das, is a director.
Lopamudra’s brother had earlier told the media that they had sold ornaments and other valuables to meet her medical expenses. “The Commissionerate Police had initially issued one registration number of vehicle and now it has been changed. We do not know whether they are late minister’s family or anyone else, we want justice.”
