The condition of Pushpa Chavan, who was severely injured after a car carrying former minister and MLA Umesh Katti’s wife Sheela knocked her down at Varur near here on Friday, is still critical. Pushpa is being treated at Balaji Institute of Neuro Science and Trauma.

According to hospital chairman Dr Kranti Kiran, Pushpa was still unconscious as she had received severe head injury.

Meanwhile, her family members are angry that no one from Katti’s family had called on the victim after Sheela admitted Pushpa to the hospital. On Sunday, Katti’s secretary Mahadevappa visited the hospital and inquired about Pushpa’s health. But as he was coming out of the ICU, he faced the wrath of the family members. “We had to borrow money for the treatment”, they told him.

Mahadevappa assured them that all medical expenses will be borne by the MLA till Pushpa recovers. Already `36,000 has been paid to the hospital. Henceforth, no money will be sought from them for medicines and other treatment, he promised.
