ATM attack victim recovering, assaulter on the run

Bangalore, Nov 30: Jyothi Uday, the Bangalore ATM attack victim, is on her way to gradual recovery but her assailant is still untraceable.

That apart, her journey to the path of recovery is rather inspiring as she heals self over the nightmarish experience, trying to lead a positive life. Her team of doctors in BGS Global Hospital too have helped her to get over the fearsome incident.

Finally, she has been shifted from the ICU to the general ward.
Doctors had initially feared that she could be paralysed on the right side of her body; however, her recovery from the brain surgery has been exceptionally well and she would not suffer any long-term paralysis.

Chief neurosurgeon at the BGS Global Hospital, Dr NK Venkataramanaa said,"All brain reactions are fine. At the current pace of recovery, she could be discharged from hospital in about ten days. We will, of course, still need to make arrangements for medication, nursing and physiotherapy for continued care at her home."

Apart from this, she also needed psychological support. The doctor further added,"Anytime she thinks about the incident she gets emotional. So we don't allow her to recount it to her family, we are not allowing people to see her either. Motivation is important at this time, as it would be for anybody who gets paralyzed for no fault of hers, just like a bolt from the blue She was in shock, but we hope she will be more positive."

Doctors say that she is psychologically stable and has not experienced any nightmares. To make things better, her 4-year old daughter visited her. However, she is not being allowed to meet anyone else as that would bring her back the memories of the incident.

Menawhile, the Andhra Police has upped the reward price for any information on the whereabouts of the attacker, offering 2 lakh rupees. Apart from this, 1 lakh rupees has also been announced by the Bangalore police.

Over 40,000 posters of the attacker have been posted in sevarl areas across the Anantpur district where he is suspected to be hiding. In fact, he was wanted in another case when he attacked a middle-aged woman and murdered her after procuring her ATM password.

He then withdrew money from the ATM twice, before it got deactivated. In fact, witnesses also said that he was found lurking around the Hudson Circle Corporation ATM for three days in search of a prey.
