    Girl, 13, loses leg in IED blast, asks: Will I get blown up again?

    Sukki is 13, and feels she is on borrowed time. "How can I save myself from the next blast?" asked the orphaned tribal girl from Sukma in conflict-ridden Bastar, who lost her left leg in a Maoist-triggered IED explosion three weeks ago. She was collecting mahua fruits when the blast happened. She now questions her future and safety. "What was my mistake? What wrong have I done? Will I get blown up again?" she asked as she was wheeled out of AIIMS-Raipur Wednesday.
