Showing signs of gradual recovery, the five-year-old child, who was raped allegedly by her neighbour, has started taking liquids and semi-solid food and her wounds have started to heal, doctors said on Monday.

D.K. Sharma, Medical Superintendent of AIIMS where the girl is undergoing treatment since Friday evening, told reporters that she has shown “signs of gradual recovery”.

“Her perineal wounds was re-dressed on Sunday and the wounds have started to heal. However, it may take a few more days to heal completely,” he said.

She is being monitored regularly by a team of specialist doctors, he said.

On Sunday, the doctors said that there was “no danger” to her life though it will take another two weeks to discharge her from the hospital.

She is responding well to the anti-biotics given to her, they had said, adding the victim has undergone colostomy procedure and surgical care of perennial injuries.

The girl was raped on April 15 in a building in east Delhi’s Gandhinagar locality where the victim and accused Manoj lived and she was rescued 40 hours later on April 17.
