New Delhi: It was an emotional moment as a
dazed Munni was reunited on Wednesday with her two-year-old battered
daughter Falak, admitted in the AIIMS ICU with life
With tears in her eyes, the 22-year-old woman, who claimed
she was separated from her three kids just before her second
marriage, entered the ICU where the comatose child is battling
for her life for the past 29 days.
"She spent nearly 15 minutes in the ICU. She was directed
by a nurse to go all alone inside. She kept staring at her
daughter and was speechless to see so many medical equipment
around her daughter," neurosurgeon Deepak Agarwal, who
has been treating her, said.
"She wept a lot after coming out of the ICU," a nurse who
was present there during Munni`s visit, said.
Meanwhile, Agarwal said that the infection level in the
brain of Falak has not subsided and she continued to be
in a critical but stable state.
Doctors have conducted a fourth life saving surgery on
her yesterday as an alternative attempt to fight brain
It involved a bedside procedure wherein a tube was put in
the brain that drains outside instead of the spine.
Falak was brought to the hospital on January 18 with
severe head injury, both her arms broken, bite marks all over
her body and her cheeks branded with hot iron.
Agarwal said, "With the damage she has suffered in the
brain, if she survives, there are high chances that she will
be mentally retarded or have a low conscious level.At present, we are trying to do our level best to get her out of
