Sahay added that the railways have begun looking for a non-governmental organisation to ensure prosthetic aid for the hapless victim. Arunima, who was crippled for life after allegedly being pushed off a moving train in UP, was offered just Rs 25,000 as ex-gratia by the Union sports ministry. An enraged Sinha on Thursday turned down the government’s financial assistance – shortly after it was announced by Ajay Maken, MoS with Independent Charge for Youth Affairs and Sports. The 23-year-old demanded a government job to compensate for her career loss. Sinha had to face more humiliation on Thursday when the Government Railway Police (GRP) brushed aside her claim that she fell off the train during a scuffle with robbers.
