Unnao Rape survivor airlifted to AIIMS in Delhi through Green Corridor
Delhi Police Creates Green Corridor from IGI Airport to AIIMS for Unnao Rape Survivor
The Unnao rape survivor was shifted to Delhi from Lucknow on Monday night following a Supreme Court directive earlier in the day. The Unnao rape victim was airlifted from Lucknow’s KGMU Trauma Centre to New Delhi for treatment at AIIMS. The Delhi Traffic Police created a green corridor to shift the Unnao rape survivor to the AIIMS Trauma Centre from the IGI Airport. They covered a distance of around 14km in 18 minutes.
As reported by a source to News 18, “On the advice of the AIIMS doctors, the ambulance carrying the injured person was provided free passage. It left T-1 airport at 9 p.m. and reached AIIMS at 9.18 p.m. She was brought via Thimmaya Marg, Parade Road, GGR, Dhaula Kuan loop, Ring Road, Moti Bagh flyover, Hyatt flyover, under Raj Nagar flyover and Jhandu Singh Marg to the hospital. The woman has been admitted to the AIIMS Trauma Centre and a team of doctors is monitoring her treatment.”
At KGMU, Trauma Centre in-charge Sandeep Tiwari said since only one patient could be airlifted at a time in the air ambulance, the lawyer will be taken to Delhi later.
The Unnao Rape Survivor was recently injured when a truck rammed into the car she was travelling in. In the accident, her aunts were killed whereas she and her lawyer were seriously injured and have been critical since then.
The CBI, which has taken over the investigation into the road accident, has booked 10 people for murder. Including Uttar Pradesh MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is already in jail, charged with the rape of the Unnao woman in 2017 when she was a minor.
