The lawyer of the Unnao rape survivor, who suffered critical injuries in a car-truck collision last week, was airlifted to New Delhi on Tuesday following Supreme Court directives in this regard.

“The lawyer was sent to New Delhi special air ambulance. He has left the King George’s Medical University (KGMU), where he was undergoing treatment to airport from where he will be taken to New Delhi for better treatment,” District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma said.

According to the KGMU administration, the lawyer was not on ventilator but was still in a serious condition and is in “coma”.

The rape survivor was on Monday airlifted through an air ambulance.
