MRI scans on his ankle and knee have been postponed until tomorrow due to pain and swelling.
Doctors at Max Hospital in Dehradun also gave him “a shrapnel above the knee… with suspected right knee ligament injury, and suspected right ankle ligament injury”. The hospital’s medical bulletin on Friday night also said Pant was “stable, alert and oriented”.
The bulletin noted, “At first glance, he had multiple abrasions on the right forearm and right leg, lacerated wounds on the forehead and near the eyebrow, and multiple abrasions on his back.”
The accident occurred in the early hours of Friday morning when Pant was driving to Roorkee. His car, which was badly damaged in the accident, reportedly hit the roadblock and later caught fire. Pant was initially taken to a local hospital – Saksham Multispecialty Hospital and Trauma Centre – where he was treated for trauma injuries before being transferred to Max Hospital in Dehradun. He arrived at the hospital at 6 am.
