New Delhi (India), Aug 7 (ANI): The Unnao rape survivor, who is battling for her life at the AIIMS Trauma centre, continues to be critical and on an advanced life support system, the hospital said on Wednesday.
She was airlifted from Lucknow to AIIMS on Monday night.

"Patients are undergoing treatment under a multidisciplinary team of doctors from Critical Care, Orthopaedics, Trauma Surgery and Pulmonary Medicine," said a press release from AIIMS.
The hospital has formed a committee of five senior doctors to monitor the health condition of the victim.

Sengar, a lawmaker from Bangermau in Unnao district, was expelled from the BJP on August 1, in the backdrop of the accident.
