Two days after the brutal attack on 20-year-old Madhavi and her husband Sandeep, the woman’s condition gradually showed improvement, even as doctors at Hyderabad’s Yashoda hospital said that she was still not totally out of danger.

The doctors said that her pulse and blood pressure were not fluctuating and they even administered oral liquids to Madhavi on Friday.

“Based on Saturday’s condition, we are planning to shift her out of intensive care unit,” the doctors said in a press release on Friday evening.

They also said that there were still chances of infection, as Madhavi had undergone major surgeries and was given multiple units of blood, for which she was on ‘appropriate antibiotic coverage’.

The police said that Madhavi’s father, Manoharachari, had called the couple under the pretext of buying new clothes for a wedding reception that had been planned. However, when they met him near Gokul Theatre in Hyderabad’s Erragadda, he took out a sickle from his bag and attacked them. The entire incident, which was caught on CCTV cameras, has shocked the city.

Madhavi was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday evening and on Thursday morning, doctors told reporters that multiple surgeries were done; after they controlled the bleeding, they performed a surgery to reconstruct her facial nerve, blood vessels, ear and muscles. Then they performed another surgery to reconstruct blood vessels, nerve, tendons and muscles, and fix bones in her left hand. The last operation was conducted on the right hand, wherein her tendon and muscles were repaired.

Around Thursday noon she was taken off the ventilator and the team informed the media that she was responsive, but still not out of danger.

A press release issued by the hospital stated that there was a deep laceration, measuring 15x5 centimeters, on the left side of her face which had split her ear and left a gash on her neck. There was also profuse bleeding of the carotid artery and multiple veins which were cut along with muscles of the neck.

Furthermore, doctors added that there was a near total amputation of her left arm and that her neurovascular bundles had been cut as well as two bones were fractured. They also said that there was a deep laceration on her right wrist, with cut tendons.

According to police, Madhavi and Sandeep were in love for the past five years and wanted to get married. While Sandeep belongs to a scheduled caste, Madhavi's family (OBC) are goldsmiths by profession. The girl's family refused to accept the marriage.

The father has since been arrested after a case was booked against him under Section 307 (Attempt to murder) of the IPC and relevant sections of the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
