The doctors say she has been receiving blood and her condition is now stable. The search for her parents is still on. Dr NS Bedi said, "Both her legs are fractured and we have plastered them. She is currently in our disaster ward and receiving blood. She was very weak when she was admitted but now she is stable. She is too young to identify anything about her family or address."
Child Helpline official Neha Sharma said, "We found this girl on Sunday in Rishikesh. We admitted her to a hospital there and later shifted her to Dehradun. The girl is not able to identify her name or her family."
Meanwhile, actor Anupam Kher has come forward and offered to help the minor. Kher has offered to fund her education. While speaking to CNN-IBN the said he is offering to fund her education as long as she wants.
