Multiple fractures, head injuries to delay Agnes cure

Amita’s finger tip amputated

SHILLONG: Cure of social activist Agnes Kharshiing will take more time due to multiple injuries while her colleague Amita Sangma is gradually recovering though she sustained injuries on the head and hands.
Earlier on Saturday, Agnes was shifted to the Neuro-Surgery ICU under the care of Dr Arindam Kakoti and his team at NEIGRIHMS.
John Kharshiing, who is camping at the hospital, said on Sunday that though his sister is out of danger, her condition remains critical due to multiple head injuries and body fractures.
Visitation continues to be restricted to ensure quick recovery, he said.
Amita is also recovering from surgery of head due to multiple wounds.
During a visit to the hospital on Saturday, Amita said the tip of her middle finger in the right hand was amputated. The target of the attackers on November 8 was Agnes and the head and hand injuries sustained by Amita were while she was trying to save Agnes.
“I had also pleaded with the attackers to spare madam (Agnes) but in vain and one of the attackers said it was not in their hands,” Amita said, adding that the attackers must have been sent by someone.
Several visitors representing different organisations thronged the hospital on Sunday.
Sampath Kumar, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister, was among the visitors.
John said he continues to receive phone calls from several persons from all over the country, expressing concerns.
Former deputy chief minister SD Khongwir also enquired about Agnes’ health.
