The condition of 23-year-old national-level volleyball player Arunima alias Sonu Sinha, who lost her left leg after being pushed out of a train last week, was stable on Tuesday, according to doctors at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here.

Ms. Sinha was shifted to the AIIMS Trauma Centre on Monday night after the detection of infection on her amputated leg. She was undergoing treatment in Lucknow before being brought here.

“She [Ms. Sinha] is recovering satisfactorily. The amputated wound was examined and it was found that the infection is minimal. It will be closed early next week,” said AIIMS Trauma Centre head M.C. Misra.

Spinal injuries

Ms. Sinha's medical examination showed spinal injuries and pelvic bone fractures, for which she would require bed rest. She was being counselled by a team of doctors at the Trauma Centre, in the presence of her family and well wishers.

Tremendous support

“The tremendous support she is receiving from the nation is also boosting her morale,” Dr. Sinha said adding that the support from the Ministry of Sports and Ministry of Railways was also encouraging.
