She is a seven-time Indian volleyball player, and amputee mountaineer, scaling Mount Everest, Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Mount Elbrus (Russia), Mount Kosciusko (Australia), and Mount Aconcagua (South America), Carstensz Pyramid (Indonesia), and Mount Vinson.

Sinha was born on 20 July 1988 in the Ambedkar Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh. She was very talented from childhood in sports and cycling and wanted to join the paramilitary force. Arunima had also received a call letter from the CISF to the head constable and wanted to join. But they say that no one can change destiny’s writing and perhaps luck had something else approved.

After getting the call letter, she was going from Lucknow to Delhi by Padmavat Express train, but in the middle of the way, an incident happened to her that changed her whole life. What happened to them on that train, we will know further in the part of the train accident.

She is the first Amputee woman in the world to climb the Seven Mountains. In 2011, a train accident made her disabled, due to which she was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Science for 4 months. During her treatment, she decided that she would not let her life be ruined like this and show him doing something.

Train Accident:

Former national volleyball and footballer Arunima Sinha boarded the Padmavat Express train from Lucknow to Delhi on 11 April 2011 after receiving a call letter from the CISF. A few hours after boarding a general coach on the train, some robbers got onto the train and snatched everyone’s bag, money, and chains. She also wanted Arunima to snatch her bag and gold chain. But Sinha was a brave girl, she did not give up and fought the robbers.

Recalling that incident, she said that the robbers pushed him out of the train when they resisted. After falling from the train she said that “she remembered that a train was coming toward them and she could not get up, her foot was on the railway track, and she could not remove her foot from the railway track. The train crushed her leg below the knee. After this, she does not remember anything, and overnight the train passed through the same railway track and it lay there.

She says that after lying on the side of the railway track when she regained consciousness, she noticed that some rats climbed on her crushed feet and were also biting insects but she was helpless and could not do anything and she could feel that pain throughout the night. She groaned with pain and fainted. Later in the morning, a villager saw him and informed the police that she was taken to the hospital.

At the hospital, the doctor noticed that she had severe pelvic injuries to her leg and the doctors cut his leg to save her life so that her life could be saved. Later, when her case came to the news, she was given a compensation of Rs 25,000 (US $350) by the Sports Ministry. After national outrage, she was compensated by the Minister of State for Youth and Sports, Ajay Maken, in the form of medical relief of an additional Rs 2,00000 (US $2800).

The CISF also assured him of a job on his behalf. Indian Railways also offered him a job in Railways. To give good treatment, Arunima was brought to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on 18 April 2011 for further treatment, where she underwent treatment for 4 months. A private company in Delhi contributed to her treatment by giving him a free prosthetic leg. During the treatment, the police investigated Arunima’s accident on the train.

Inquiries into the investigation put the police in doubt and according to the police statement, Arunima was either attempting suicide or suffered an accident while crossing railway tracks. Questioning the police investigation, Arunima claimed that the police were lying and, while raising her voice, she approached the Allahabad High Court. While the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court, hearing her case, ruled against the claims of the police and ordered the Indian Railways to pay compensation of Rs 500000 (US $7,700).
