Delhi journalist brutally attacked by drug addict in Ashok Vihar park

Delhi: A 45-year-old, freelance journalist Aparna Kalra, was attacked by the drug addict youth, while she went on an evening walk around 6.15 at Ashok Vihar, neighbourhood park on Wednesday.

According to Hindustan Times, the Freelance journalist suffered from severe head injury and is undergoing treatment in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a private city hospital.

Doctors said on Thursday that she is stable, responsive and speaking. She is suffering from a blood clot (haematoma), revealed after the CT-scan of the brain was done.

Passerby noticed Kalra lying unconscious in a pool of blood informed the police. She was bought to the Fortis Hospital by her sister at 9.20pm on Wednesday. She suffered frontal-lobe fractures in her skull.

Doctor said, “She was brought in by her sister, who had earlier taken her to Deep Chand Bandhu Hospital, which referred her to Fortis. She had a lot of fluid (cerebrospinal fluid) collection in her brain cavities, and underwent an emergency surgery to remove it at late night.”

“We had done a repeat CT (computed tomography) scan to determine whether the fluid collection had stopped and to review her internal injuries. There is a blood clot, but we don’t plan to operate her. We will most likely be using clot buster medicines,” said the doctor.
