In fact, on March 3, this child was found soaked in blood on the railway track near Ratlam. One leg and one hand have been cut off and separated from the torso. The other hand and the other leg are also badly injured. After two surgeries, the innocent’s life was saved, but no one knows who this child is, where he came from. It is known from his broken words that he belongs to tribal society. Now the hospital staff, GRP policemen and attendants of admitted patients are taking care of him.
During dressing, he remembers his mother saying bye-bye due to pain. Superintendent of MY Hospital, Dr. PS Thakur has spoken to Navbharat Times Online. He said that this news was given in the emergency of MY Hospital on the intervening night of March 3-4. A child has been brought from Ratlam in critical condition. Its hands and legs have been cut off from the train. Our team immediately reached and saw the eyes were filled with tears in the first moment. One arm of the child was completely severed from the shoulder. One leg was also hanging below the knee. As soon as his wound was opened, a stream of blood came out.
He said that bleeding from all four limbs together, you must be understanding what kind of scene it would be. We immediately told the accompanying policeman that he would have to undergo an immediate surgery. Call the attendant, then the policeman told that there is none. We immediately decided through group discussion that the CMHO will get notified from the office. A complete file was prepared in a hurry, permission was taken, consent was also taken from the police and surgery was started in the operation theatre.
Dr. Thakur said that he was starting the operation, then it came to know that due to excessive bleeding, his hemoglobin was reduced to only 6. It was less than half of normal. Anyway the child is a bit weak. Even before the accident, his hemoglobin would not have been more than 9-10. We transfused two bottles of blood and performed the surgery. His bleeding parts were completely closed and such veins were separated from the body, due to which there was a danger of spreading infection. We were afraid that if any vein remained suppressed, the body would turn black.
The hospital immediately conducted a fitness test and the child’s life was saved. Now he is being made able to walk by using artificial limbs. Our entire staff is taking care of him. Cricket is being played to entertain him.
On the other hand, GRP constable Chetan Narvale, who came from Ratlam to take care of the innocent, says that innocent Akash is a big fan of cricketer Virat Kohli. He is obsessed with being like Virat, he often watches cricket matches on mobile while sitting next to him. He jumps with joy when players hit fours or sixes or take catches. He tries to clap by bringing one hand to his stomach.
The constable said that seeing his interest in cricket, I told him that Betu, if I bring you a bat-ball, you will play. He nodded happily at this. The very next day, before duty, I bought him a plastic bat and half a dozen balls. He was very happy to see this. I understood that he wants to play cricket but is also helpless. When I spoke to the staff of the hospital, they said that this innocent person should be given the environment he likes.
The GRP constable said that when I tossed the plastic ball towards him, he tried to shoot with one hand. He missed, it happened four-five times in the beginning. When the ball was thrown on his bat, he was happy to hit the shot. Since then he has become attached to the bat-ball. Even when he sleeps, the bat-ball stays with him.
The special thing is that when I watch cricket match on mobile, Akash is very happy to see Virat Kohli’s smoky batting.
Could not trace the family
However, the police and administration are tracing his family. This is the first time that the policemen have been assigned this kind of duty for an admitted innocent child, which includes taking care of him, feeding him, taking him on a wheel chair and especially entertaining him. The policemen bring him biscuits, chocolates, fruits and new clothes to eat. Innocent Akash remembers his mother many times a day. When the wounds of this tribal innocent are being dressed, he cries profusely remembering his mother by the name Bai-Bai, seeing this scene the eyes of the people present there are filled with tears.
