IIIT ready to provide artificial limb free of cost

Arunima, who was brought from Bareilly around noon, has been admitted to the CSM Medical University, where a team of specialists examined her, varsity officials here said.

Doctors said that the athlete would require another surgery to make sure that a prosthetic limb could be fitted and she will not face any problem thereafter.

These facilities were not available at the district hospital in Bareilly, where she was admitted on April 12 after being picked up from the railway tracks.

The Allahabad based Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) has said that it is  ready to provide the athlete its state-of-the-art artificial limb called Adaptive Modular Active Leg (AMAL) free of cost. The institute experts said that the athlete would be able to play again with AMAL.

Sport college

Meanwhile, Arunima, who has been offered financial help from different quarters, said on Saturday that she wanted to donate all the money to the Sports College.

Arunima, a resident of Ambedkar Nagar in Uttar Pradesh and volleyball player representing the state, was on her way to Noida to appear in a physical test for being recruited in the CISF, when she was pushed out of the moving train near Bareilly after she resisted an attempted robbery.

She was found lying on the railway tracks on early Tuesday morning and was taken to the district hospital in Bareilly, where her left leg had to be amputated.
