    Aruna Shanbaug on ventilator

    Posted on: 2015-05-16 Posted by: CLAT Gurukul Category: Archive Blog

    aruna then n now Aruna Shanbaug, the nurse who has been lying in a vegetative state for the past 42 years after she was brutally assaulted and raped by a hospital sweeper, is critical and on ventilator. Senior medical officer KEM hospital Pravin Bangar said Ms. Shanbaug, is suffering from pneumonia. Note: On a night in November 1973, Ms. Shanbaug who then worked as a junior nurse at the Kings Edward Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, was brutally assaulted and raped by a wardboy-cum-sweeper of the hospital, Sohanlal Bharta Valmiki, after throttling her with a dog chain. The brutal assault cut off blood and oxygen supply to key parts of her brain. Ms. Shanbaug has been in a vegetative state since and confined to a bed at the KEM hospital where nurses and the hospital staff take care of her. Euthanasia plea Ms. Shanbaug’s case had triggered a national debate on mercy killing. In 2011, the Supreme Court responded to a plea for euthanasia filed by journalist Pinki Virani but turned down the mercy killing petition. In her petition, Ms. Virani, who penned the book Aruna’s Story , had urged the court to grant euthanasia arguing that the former nurse was “virtually a dead person.” Source: The Hindu   Note: For more updates on topics asked in CLAT, keep visiting CLAT Gurukul which is a knowledge sharing initiative of The Knowledge Tree, Patna's premier coaching institute for CLAT and for other law entrance exams like AILET, SET, LSAT etc.
