New Delhi:
Falak, the two-year-old battered baby who has been battling for survival
at the premier AIIMS Trauma Centre here, has shown signs of improvement
and is likely to be discharged soon, said a doctor looking after her for
the past almost month-and-half.

"She is showing body movements
and moving her limbs, she has survived now," Deepak Agrawal, assistant
professor (neurosurgery) at the AIIMS Trauma Centre said.

Falak,
who was admitted to the AIIMS Jan 18 with a fractured skull, bruises and
human bite marks all over her body, has undergone five life saving
surgeries. A teenager, claiming to be her mother, got her admitted to the
hospital.

"Her infection and breathing problem is under control,
but she is sub-conscious and still in coma," said Agrawal who, with a team
of 10 resident doctors, has been closely monitoring Falak for the past 43
days.

Agrawal also said that Falak can be discharged soon: "She
is doing fine, soon we can declare her fit to be discharged from the
hospital."

The doctors attending on her earlier said that she may
be moved out of the intensive care unit in a couple of days.
