The seven-year-old girl from Mandsaur, who was found raped and with her throat slit on June 27, walked a few steps on Monday after undergoing multiple surgeries in Indore, reported TOI.
Improvement in health
The child had suffered injuries on her neck, face, head and private parts.
Multiple surgeries were performed on her. A colostomy surgery was also performed to reposition her intestines.
In the TOI report, MY Hospital superintendent Dr VS Pal said "We made her ambulate. She walked in the ICU ward. Once the doctors give a nod, she will be sent to a private ward."
"There has been a lot of improvement in the girl's health in the past 24 hours. She is having adequate semi-solid food,” he added.
The Rape Case
The incident took place on June 26, when the girl was waiting for her grandfather to pick her up from school.
She was then lured by the two accused, 20-year-old Irfan Mev alias Bhaiyyu and 24-year-old Asif with toffees and eatables.
