Meanwhile, the condition of the victim continues to be critical even though she has been taken off the ventilator at the Safdarjung hospital in New Delhi. Briefing to the media on the latest medical update on the health of the victim, the doctors attending on her said, early signs of recovery are evident in the periodic evaluation of her health reports.
