The shock incident happened on November 10 last year when the young girl was riding on top of her uncle’s tractor in Dharampura village in Punjab.

Her uncle was watering an orange orchard when he discovered his niece covered in blood and missing her scalp.

She was initially rushed to her local hospital but later transferred to the Cosmo Super Speciality Hospital in Bathinda to undergo complex plastic surgery for eight hours to reattach her scalp.

The surgery was performed by Dr Raman Goyal.

He said: “Khushpreet’s complete scalp and the skin of her forehead had peeled off in the accident.

“As soon as she was brought in we decided to conduct micro vascular repair of the scalp and reattach the same.”


“The complex surgery lasted for about eight hours.”

Dr Goyal, who has been practising since 2016, specialises in advanced skin treatments and advanced surgical techniques.

The young girl spent 20 days recovering following the surgery in intensive care and has now fully recovered and is beginning to grow her hair back.
