Babula Panda discharged from SCB, handed over to police  

Cuttack: Freedom fighter Laxmi Indira Panda’s grandson Babula Panda, who was undergoing treatment at the SCB Medical College and Hospital here, was handed over to Koraput police and the Commissionerate police after being discharged from the hospital today.

The Koraput police will escort him to his home. Babula had been undergoing treatment in the trauma care ICU of the hospital since April 27.

SCB Principal Dr Sidharth Das said, “We discharged him at around 11 am. He is completely stable now. Necessary checkups were also conducted in the neurology and cardiology departments. He can lead a normal life now.”

However, his mother Sujata Panda has been crying inconsolably asking for her son’s whereabouts.

“I don’t know who took my son away and where. Please send him back to me,” she requested the hospital authorities.
