Arunima (Sonu) Sinha being shifted to AIIMS, New Delhi
Arunima (Sonu) Sinha has been shifted to AIIMS , New Delhi by flight from CSMMU, Lucknow:
National level volleyball player Arunima (Sonu) Sinha, had lost her leg in a train robbery bit by goons onboard a train near Bareli, Uttar Predash, India. She was sent to the Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University (CSMMU) in Lucknow for advanced treatment. The doctors at CSMMU further referred her to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences AIIMS, New Delhi.
She has since been brought to AIIMS by a special aircraft arranged by the Uttar Pradesh government. Earlier the sports authority of India had paid `2,00,000/- to her mother through their officials Sanjay Saraswat and Rachna Govil. Union Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Ajay Maken also visited Sonu at the trauma centre at CSMMU in Lucknow and issued orders for shifting Arunima to AIIMS, New Delhi.
It is reported that Arunima’s amputated left leg had been infected and doctors at AIIMS have advised surgery for removing the infected tissues. Multiple fractures have been found on her right leg also that has been plastered. The case study by the AIIMS says that Arunima’s condition is stable and she will be able to walk after her treatment.
The bad part of this progress is that the hooligans who pushed Arunima out of the running train on the adjoining track in front of another running train are still absconding. Uttar Pradesh police and Railway police have not yet succeeded in nabbing them.
Arunima has been provided financial relief and best treatment; but she is still being denied justice.
