Pushpa Chavan (25) of Mandalagatti village in Kalaghatagi taluk, who was knocked down by a car which was carrying former minister Umesh Katti’s wife Sheela at Varur here on Friday, is said to be in a critical condition.

Pushpa has been admitted to the Balaji Institute of Neurosciences and Trauma in the city. Doctors at the hospital told Express that Pushpa, who was six-month pregnant, was carrying twins and had a  miscarriage after she was hit by the car.

“Pushpa sustained severe head and abdominal injuries and is on a ventilator. A six-hour surgery was performed on her on Friday night and we found her liver and intestines badly damaged,” said hospital chairman Dr Kranthi Kiran.

Speaking to Express, Pushpa’s uncle Ramachandra said they haven’t even received a courtesy call from the former minister.

“This shows their callousness. We have not received any response from them after Pushpa was admitted here. I even tried calling them but they do not answer or their numbers were busy. There has been no monetary help either. The doctors have said that they will try their best and we have placed our hopes with them,” he said.

Muthanna Sarvagol, inspector of the Hubli (rural) police station where a complaint has been registered, said the driver has been arrested and released on bail. Sheela was on her way to Belgaum from Bangalore when the mishap took place.
