Roshini Gupta, the 22-year-old JNU student, who was admitted to Safdarjung Hospital on Wednesday after she was brutally attacked by her classmate, is stable and responding well to treatment.

She has now been taken off the ventilator and is able to breathe on her own. “She is doing fine but will remain critical for a few more days because of the extent of injuries on her head. We also do not know the long-term neurological implications, so she’ll remain in the intensive care unit for some more time,” said a senior doctor at the hospital.

A CT scan done this morning revealed that there was no blood clot in her brain, said a senior doctor treating her. “It will take at least two weeks to assess her condition fully and take a decision. She will be kept in the ICU till Sunday. On Monday, we will decide whether she can be taken out. Antibiotics have been given to her so that the infection doesn’t spread,” the doctor added.

Roshini was attacked with an axe on the JNU campus by her classmate, leaving deep injuries on her skull.
