DIBRUGARH: A 36-year-old woman from Assam who had set out on a trip to Chennai in search of a job had to return with an amputated leg and hands in Dibrugarh on Thursday. The woman, identified as Bina Soy (Suren) of 3 No. Salmari Hatigarh (Bongali Tipamia village) under Tingkhong Police station, who lost her right leg and right hand in a train mishap somewhere near Jatni (Khurda Road junction) in Odisha on November 22 while she was travelling to Chennai, returned on Thursday after eight days' treatment at AIIMS, Bhubaneswar.
According to reports, the train mishap had occurred on November 22 at around 11:30 pm. She was rushed to the medical institute by RPF jawans in an injurious condition. Her right leg (below knee) and fingers of her right hand have been amputated.
Under the intervention of State Minister Bimal Borah, who is also the MLA of Tingkhong LAC, Deputy Commissioner Biswajit Pegu and Tingkhong Circle Officer Kaustav Kalita arranged the return air fare of the injured Bina Soy and her attendant. They reached Dibrugarh via Kolkata at around 10:55 AM on Thursday. The patient and her attendants were later taken to their home in a 108 ambulance arranged by the district. Rapheal Suren, husband of Bina Soy, thanked the Dibrugarh district administration and MLA Bimal Borah for their proactive role.
"My wife went to Chennai for a job but unfortunately the incident happened. We are poor people and could not have brought my wife to Dibrugarh if the Dibrugarh DC Biswajit Pegu and MLA Bimal Borah hadn't helped us. We thank them for the help," Suren said.
