Mysuru/Bengaluru, July 24:- Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy has directed the Deputy Commissioner of Mysuru Abhiram G Sankar to take necessary steps to bring back the woman who has been sheltered at Himachal Hospital of Mental Health and Rehabilitation (HHMHR) from the past two years.

CityToday on July 13, 2018 was the first to carry a special report in the state titled ‘Mysuru woman mysteriously lands in Himachal; awaits help from Karnataka govt.” The report had brought to the notice of government about the plight of the woman ‘Padma’ from Mysuru District who has been sheltered at HHMHR in Shimla (Himachal Pradesh) from the past two years and how she is awaiting help from Karnataka government to get back to her native Mysuru and be with her family members.

The issue was then brought to the notice of the Deputy Director (Mental Health) Dr Rajani, Mysuru District Health Officer (DHO) and the DC Abhiram G Sankar. The officials from the Mysuru district administration tracked the family members of Padma who were residing at a village on Periyapattana.

Now the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) on Monday night stated that Chief Minister Kumaraswamy has directed the DC Mysuru to take necessary steps to bring back the woman.

The Mysuru District Administration is already in touch with the doctors from HHMHR and authorities at Boeileauganj in Shimla.

According to officials of HHMHR, Padma was sent to the hospital in Shimla from a medical college hospital at Tanda in 2016. Since then, she is under treatment at the rehabilitation centre, but doctors say she is completely cured. It is said that Padma who was allegedly depressed after her husband abandoned her may have taken a train to Chandigarh and from there she ended up reaching the Shimla hospital.
