The 13-year-old rape victim, who underwent an abortion last week at Safdarjung hospital in Delhi, was admitted to a private hospital in Gurgaon on Thursday afternoon.
According to the doctors at Artemis Health Sciences, the girl’s condition is stable but she is still under psychological trauma. “Her psychotherapy will begin after she undergoes a psychoanalysis test. She will undergo a couple of counselling sessions daily,” said Dr Veena Bhat, director of obstetrics and gynaecology, Artemis Health Sciences who will be looking into the victim’s case.
The minor has been put on supplements and intravenous antibiotics.
“She had fever after her abortion. We have put her on intravenous antibiotics,” added Bhat.
Artemis Health Sciences had volunteered to fund the girl’s treatment after the abortion.
The victim, daughter of a migrant labourer from Rajasthan, was abducted by the three men from near her house at Kadipur village on February 22 and raped over several days.
The girl was later abandoned at the Gari-Harsaru railway station near Gurgaon on March 12. On June 3, the Civil Hospital found her to be suffering from central placenta praevia i.e., dislocation of the placenta and referred her to the Safdarjung Hospital as they “lacked the expertise” to deal with her case.
She underwent a medical abortion on June 6.
