Chief Minister Mayawati on Tuesday kept away from Lala Lajpat Rai (LLR) Hospital here where the Fatehpur Dalit girl,who was grievously injured by three men on Saturday while resisting a rape attempt,is being treated. Mayawati was on an inspection tour of the district. Though she visited another hospital,she kept away from LLR Hospital,which is the biggest hospital in the district. Badlu Ram,the victim’s father,has been camping in the hospital ever since her daughter was admitted here.

Over the past few days,Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi,Union Coal Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal,BJP state president Surya Pratap Shahi,BJP women’s wing president Smriti Irani,Leader of Opposition in Assembly Shivpal Singh Yadav and state Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi have also visited the hospital to enquire about her. But no BSP leader has so far visited her.

Meanwhile,the Dalit victim regained consciousness for brief spells and spoke for the first time on Tuesday,after a marathon surgery lasting more than 12 hours.

Dr Sanjay Kumar,one of the surgeons attending to her,said: “The fear that the girl will not be able to hear from the right ear is minimal,as no harm has been done to the internal side of the ear.”
