Amrita (35), who was allegedly kept in confinement at home by her parents for the last six years, is responding well to physiotherapy at NIMHANS, sources said. The doctors said that her limb movement may take time as she had developed contractions since she was confined in a room for many years.
Speaking to Express, Dr V L Sateesh, medical superintendent, NIMHANS, said, “She has come out of depression and is very positive, following which treatment on contractions of upper and lower limbs was started. The orthopedics have started with physiotherapy, but it will take time as she was confined in a room for too long without any movement.”
Shetty back home
Anantharamaiah Shetty, who was allegedly chained by his sons, was discharged from the hospital on Thursday. He was treated for dementia.
“The family members have been advised to take care of him and medicines have been handed over to them,” said Dr Sateesh.
