Mamata Banerjee suffers serious bone injuries

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who was allegedly pushed by unknown miscreants while campaigning for West Bengal assembly elections in Nandigram, has suffered severe bone injuries in her left ankle and foot, right shoulder, forearm and neck, a senior doctor of the state-run SSKM hospital said in a medical bulletin issued late Wednesday night.

After the preliminary medical tests conducted on the TMC supremo, the doctors at the hospital decided to closely monitor Banerjee, who has been complaining of chest pain and breathlessness since the alleged attack at Nandigram in Purba Medinipore district earlier in the evening, for the next 48 hours.

Doctors conducted an X-ray on the Chief Minister minutes after she was taken to the Kolkata hospital from Nandigram in Purba Medinipur district on Wednesday night. She is undergoing treatment at the 12.5 special cabin of Woodburn Block of the SSKM Hospital. The state government has constituted a team of five senior doctors to treat Banerjee.
