Unnao Rape Survivor Put On Life Support: AIIMS Doc

New Delhi: The Unnao rape survivor, who was admitted to AIIMS, remains critical and is on life support system, a senior doctor said on Tuesday.


Delhi Traffic Police had created a green corridor on Monday to shift the rape survivor to the AIIMS Trauma Centre from the Indira Gandhi International Airport, covering a distance of around 14 km in 18 minutes.

“On the advice of AIIMS doctors, the journey of the ambulance carrying the injured person was facilitated by providing free passage,” a police officer said.

“She is sick and on life support system needing medication to support her blood pressure. The patient remains critical and is undergoing treatment under multi-disciplinary team of doctors,” AIIMS Trauma Centre chief Dr Rajesh Malhotra said.

The rape survivor, who suffered critical injuries in a car-truck collision last week, was airlifted to New Delhi from Lucknow on Monday evening for further treatment following Supreme Court directives.

She and her lawyer suffered critical injuries on July 28 when the car, in which they and two others were travelling, was hit by a truck in Raebareli. Two of her relatives were killed in the accident.

CBI, which has taken over the investigation into the accident, has booked 10 people for murder, including UP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is lodged in jail after being charged with raping the woman in 2017 when she was a minor.
