Ramdev stir: Condition of Raj Bala continues to be critical

New Delhi, Jun 12: The condition of 51-year-old Raj Bala, who was admitted in a city hospital here for the past seven days following a spine injury she suffered during police action against yoga guru Ramdev at Ramlila Maidan, continued to remain "very critical".

Doctors, attending to the Gurgaon resident at the Neurosurgery Department ICU of G B Pant Hospital here, said, "Her condition is very critical and her vital parameters are being maintained with increased pharmacological support." Meanwhile, Bala's blood pressure and heart rate which fluctuated yesterday, has shown no major changes.

Currently on a ventilator, Bala is conscious and obeying verbal commands, they said.

Bala underwent a surgery on June 5 for cervical spinal injuries. Doctors have done decompression and fixation using plate, screw and cage.

Doctors also said that her neurological status remains unchanged and she is quadriplegic (paralysis caused by illness or injury to a human).

Another Ramdev supporter, with head injuries, is now undergoing treatment at the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital.

"Only one patient is admitted with us and the rest have been discharged. He will be discharged as soon as he recovers," Dr Richa Diwan, Medical Superintendent of LNJP Hospital, said.
