One week after sustaining a fractured skull, when her mother was attacked by an ex-lover, six month old Selena Rambarat is still fighting for her life.
The alleged attacker Fazul Ousman has managed to evade police thus far and relatives had heard reports that the man had left for sea.
The child was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit at the Georgetown Public Hospital last Thursday where she was hooked up to a life support machine.
Rambarat was admitted to the Children’s Ward at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH) last Monday afternoon. She was in her mother’s arms at the time of the attack and sustained an injury from a blow dealt by Ousman. Rambarat, according to a doctor’s report, has suffered damage to her brain as a result of the blow.
Kalwantie Kumar, the child’s 21-year-old mother, of Hand-en-veldt, Mahaica was returning home from the clinic that day when she was allegedly attacked by Ousman, a man with whom she had formerly shared a relationship. Kumar’s right arm was fractured as a result and she sustained injuries to the head. The woman has since been discharged from the GPH.
Reports were that Hemwantie Jadunauth, the woman’s 20-year-old sister and their 56-year-old mother, Lalpatie Persaud, rushed to her assistance and were also beaten by the man. Jadunauth and Persaud spent several days in the hospital.
