New Delhi, Feb.1 (ANI): Doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) trauma centre on Wednesday said that the medical condition of two-year-old battered baby Falak remains very critical, and added that her chances of survival are quite weak.
Falak had undergone a second brain surgery on Monday after fluid accumulation. With the problems continuing for her, she has now been diagnosed with meningitis, a potentially life threatening bacterial infection.
Falak continued on ventilator support and has been kept on steady dosage of antibiotics.
Giving Falak's health update, AIIMS doctor D.C. Mishra said, "Falak continues to be in a critical condition. We are hoping against hope that this child will respond to antibiotics. The infection is a cause for concern. We are covering with antibiotics which might respond."
AIIMS neurologist Dr Sumit Sinha Said, "She is suffering from meningitis. I am saying that there is infection in the fluid. If the infection does not respond to the antibiotics in the next 24 to 48 hours, we might think of some surgery to drain out the fluid."
While the little one struggles in the hospital, the Delhi Police was trying to trace Rajkumar, the man who is believed to be a crucial link to finding Falak's parents.
Meanwhile, the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) that questioned the teenaged girl who had admitted Falak to AIIMS has submitted its report to the police. The committee has said that the teen could have been part of a prostitution racket. (ANI with inputs)
