Ni Putu Kariani (33) whose legs were cut and one of her feet cut off by her husband Kadek Adi Waisaka Putra (36) is still being treated intensively in Sanglah Hospital, Denpasar, Bali, as reported by Tribun Bali
The victim’s family are trying to comfort Kariani, known as Putu, who is currently struggling to eliminate the trauma. Jero Mangku Gede Suriastawa, a relative of the victim said she remains traumatized. Meanwhile, the family does not know when Putu will be allowed to go home.
“So far the family keep trying to comfort the victim in order to eliminate the feeling of trauma, and her parents are also accompanying her. So far, we from both sides of the family, hand over the case to the authorities for the the husband to be punished according to his actions. The relationship between the two families is fine because this is a personal behaviour” Suriastawa said on Monday (11/09/2017).
The wound on the victim’s right leg was more severe than the amputee victim’s left leg. “For healing maybe the left leg will heal first instead of the right, because the wound on her right leg is worse. For her left leg we will use a prosthetic limb, we hope it will heal quickly” Suriastawa added.
