Kanpur: A 16-year-old girl, who along with two other minor girls was found in an unconscious state in an agriculture field in Unnao’s Babuhara village under Asoha police station on Wednesday, regained consciousness on Saturday and is in a stable condition at a private hospital in Kakadeo area of the city.
“Doctors stated that after the girl has shown signs of improvement, she was put off ventilator support on Saturday,” said SSP/DIG Preetinder Singh.
The girl, however, is still not in a condition to record statements or narrate the incident. The doctors are constantly monitoring her condition and administering necessary medical assistance to her, he said.
The victim, who was offered pesticide with water along with her two other relatives, regained consciousness and opened her eyes on Friday night for the first time since she was admitted at the hospital on Thursday.
“On being called upon by her name, she responds and opens her eyes. When asked about her well-being, she even nods her head. Once she fully shows signs of improvement, her statement will be recorded before a magistrate. Her family members were only allowed to see her that too from the glass partition of the ICU,” said Inspector Kakadeo Kunj Bihari Mishra. A deployment of heavy police force has been made at the hospital to ensure law and order.
During preliminary assessment, the girl was found to be in shock. “Taking it to be a suspected case of poisoning, she was immediately admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the paediatric ward,” the medical bulletin issued by the private hospital located in Kakadeo, where she is undergoing treatment, stated.
The victim was admitted to the hospital in an intubated condition and was on bag and tube ventilation. Later, she was shifted to the ICU and rigorous treatment was given to her. On Saturday, the girl was put off the ventilator and has been going through spontaneous respiration, it added.
To recall, three minor girls — aged 16, 15 and 14 — were found in an unconscious state in an agriculture field in Unnao’s Babuhara village under Asoha police station area by the locals on Wednesday night when they did not return after leaving their house to bring fodder for cattle. The three were rushed to hospital, where two of them were declared brought dead.
The 16-year-old girl was rushed to a district hospital in Unnao and later referred to a private hospital in the Kakadeo area of the city where she is recuperating.
The police had on Friday achieved a breakthrough and arrested two people in connection with the deaths of the two teenage girls. The cops told reporters that the incident was the fallout of a one-sided love affair.
