Finally, Dolma Bhutti, the Tibetan battling for life, will be operated upon for kidney transplant on Thursday. Nearly two months after the Punjab and Haryana High Court ordered that no delay be caused in the surgery, three PGI surgeons Dr Mukut Minz, Dr Ashish Minz and Dr Navjot Singh will perform the surgery on Thursday.
Both Dolma and the donor, Buddhist monk Nawang Choeden were admitted to the PGI today. They will operated upon on Thursday at 8:15 am. The lone hurdle in the kidney transplant of Tibet National was cleared last week after her tissues had matched with that of the donor, Nawang Choeden.
Speaking to Newsline, Nawang Choeden said "we have been admitted. The surgery will take place on Thursday". It was on July 20 the Punjab and Haryana High Court had disposed of a petition filed by Bhutti seeking directions to PGI to perform the surgery without delay.
Twenty-one-year-old Bhutti had moved the Court seeking directions to PGI where she has been admitted, to immediately perform her kidney transplant surgery. The PGI authorities have expressed helplessness in performing the surgery stating that the surgery could not be performed until the Himachal government and the Tibet association gave their nod. Finally, after the High Court's intervention, the Himachal government and Tibet Association had given their nod for the surgery.
Disposing of the petition, on July 20, Justice Mahesh Grover had made it clear that no delay should be caused in performing the surgery. "It has further been stated by the learned counsel for the PGIMER that the petitioner (Dolma Bhutti) shall now be subjected to surgical procedure as per her turn, as there is a waiting list for such like patients. On due consideration of the matter, I am of the opinion that since the necessary approvals have been granted, this has rendered the instant petition infructuous. The same is therefore, disposed of as such. However, a direction is issued to PGIMER to evaluate the medical condition of the petitioner so that she does not suffer any serious consequences on account of the delay in surgical procedure".
