Dr. Ashish Yagnik of Max Hospital told that cricketer Rishabh Pant is under the supervision of Orthopedic and Plastic Surgeon and his condition remains stable. The rest of the injuries will be known correctly only after the investigation.
The doctor also told that Rishabh Pant is able to talk to the doctors treating him. Apart from this, he has also recorded his statement to the police about the accident.
Pant had a nap and then the accident happened
Swapan Kishore, Superintendent of Police, Haridwar Rural, quoted Rishabh Pant’s statement as saying, ‘He wanted to surprise his mother. That’s why he had left Roorkee alone in his car late at night. He himself was driving the car. Suddenly he dozed off, due to which the vehicle hit the divider.
