Two days after she was thrown out of a train, doctors of the 29-year-old victim on Friday confirmed that she was now in coma and that though her condition is stable, she continues to be critical.

Consultant neurosurgeon Dr Nitin Garg, who is treating the victim, who has a deep diffused brain injury, said her vital parameters were stable and they were planning to conduct MRI on Saturday.

"We are continuously monitoring her condition. She is still critical but her condition is stable. Her health parameters are not deteriorating. So we are hopeful she will show some improvement in the coming weeks," he said.
