Woman stranded at Shimla returns to Mysuru; CM assures help

Mysuru/Bengaluru, August 03:- A woman from Mysuru who was sheltered at Himachal Hospital of Mental Health and Rehabilitation (HHMHR) from the past two years has finally reached Mysuru.

On Thursday night, the woman Padma alias Saraswathi was felicitated with a shawl and sweets by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy.

Kumaraswamy expressed gratitude to the doctors of HHMHR who took care of her for two years and assured all possible help for Padma’s treatment and rehabilitation.

The Chief Minister also directed Deputy Commissioner of Mysuru Abhiram G Sankar to take necessary action regarding the woman’s request for a house and help in finding her husband.

Doctors attending Padma have said that she had lost her memory but she could regain it with proper treatment, she will be kept under observation for few days at the Home for Women in the city and then a decision will be taken.

While Mysuru DC Sankar on Thursday said, “The woman has been through a harrowing experience and needs time to recover from the episode, it is deemed proper that she be shielded from interaction with strangers.”

The DC also requested the media to cooperate by not interviewing her as the health and emotional well being of Padma is more important. –(KK)
