New Delhi: Twenty-three-year-old Samlin Jenita lies in Chennaiâ€™s Mehta hospital battling for life. Twenty-eight weeks pregnant, seriously bruised and nursing a severe brain injury, Jenita is a victim of dowry harassment.
She was flown to Chennai from the US on Sunday night in a special air ambulance after her family got a frantic call informing them of her accident and urging them to take her back.
Jenita was allegedly beaten up by her husband Christy Daniels – an Infosys employee in the US – who reportedly threw her out of a moving car.
She was rescued by Sardar Inamullah, a Pakistan-origin pathologist and was sent home.
â€œJenita was brought into our hospital on July 31 and she was severely injured. She sustained 80 per cent burs and there seemed to be no chances of survival,â€ Inamullhah told CNN-IBN.
However, Daniels denies this, saying Jenita was injured in a car accident in which he and his sister and parents were hurt as well. He claims that he had provided her contact numbers and address in India to the hospital as well.
But Samlin’s parents say they got to know only when they got a call from Inamullhah who got suspicious while treating her.
Inamullah is a pathologist at the Lake Forest Hospital in Illinois and was the first to suspect something was wrong when a badly-hurt Jenita was rushed into the hospital by a police patrol van. She was brought to the hospital in a state of coma, with multiple bone fractures.
â€œInitially, I started helping the family but I realised there was something wrong. There was no information, no insurance papers, nothing. Then I heard her husband had left her and abandoned in the hospital. The state of North Carolina wanted to take her custody,â€ said Inamullhah.
He says none of Jenitaâ€™s relatives came to see her while she was battling for life. â€œHer husband came for first few weeks but none of her relatives came. Then he disappeared too. Thatâ€™s when I and some of my Indian friends â€“ including Mr Sebastian â€“ got her custody,â€ he said.
Inamullhah says Jenita also narrated her version of the story. â€œShe told us there was a fight inside the car and they were trying to push her out. Thatâ€™s when her husband â€“ who was at the wheel â€“ lost control.â€
As of now, both Jenita and her child are in a stable condition in Chennaiâ€™s Mehta Hospital. But Jenita has been paralysed on the left side due to the brain injuries.
Her parents are now filing a police case against Jenita’s in-laws.
As for Inamullhah, he says his duty and priority to save the girl, irrespective of the nationality. “There was no question of our nationality or culture coming into play. I have a number of Indian friends and I love them all like my family,” he said.
