Cuttack: The Koraput gang rape survivor was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Medicine Department of SCB Medical College and Hospital (SCBMCH) in Cuttack today after her health condition deteriorated.

As per medical sources, a seven-member special team of doctors, including anaesthesia, medicine and heart specialists, has been constituted for her treatment.

The team is led by Prabhat Kumar Padhi, HoD of Geriatric Medicine at SCB.

On November 18, the survivor was admitted at Saheed Laxman Nayak Medical College in Koraput, after she started vomiting continuously at the Tribal Welfare (TRW) School in Kotapad where she was being looked after by the District Child Welfare Committee (CWC).

But as her health condition did not improve, she was shifted to SCB Medical College on the same night.

"As per my knowledge she consumed iron tablets in a suicide attempt due to which she started vomiting blood. The team will conduct her endoscopy to ascertain the extent of damage. Her condition is still worrisome," said superintendent of SCB, Shyama Kanungo.
