Marzan Akter Priya is out of danger now after treatment, confirmed karate federation general secretary Kyaw Shwe Hla

Bangladesh gold-medalist karateist Marzan Akter Priya has been hospitalized after being injured during the team karate semi-final event Wednesday. 

She is out of danger now after treatment, confirmed karate federation general secretary Kyaw Shwe Hla.

Priya suffered the injury after being hit below her ear by a Sri Lankan opponent. 

Priya was brought out of the met immediately and taken to Blue Cross Hospital via ambulance. 

"She has been taken to hospital. I just talked to the manager who is now with Priya, she assured me that Priya is alright now. We unfortunately have lost a gold medal as a result of her injury," said the karate federation general secretary. 

The medical in-charge of the Emergency, Dr. Prajwal Man Shreshtha said, "We are investigating her and provide some painkillers because the patient told she feels pain on her head neck. She seemed OK now. But we called neurology specialist for further investigation."

Dr. Abhishek Chaturbedi, senior consultant neurosurgeon, inspected Priya. 

Later, Priya underwent a CT scan and Dr. Chaturbedi said there is nothing to be worried about. 

The doctor will observe for two more hours before releasing her.

Women's kumite team comprising Mounjera Borna, Priya, Humaira Akther Antara and Naima Khatun managed to beat Sri Lanka 2-1 but lost to Pakistan by a similar margin without the injured Priya.

Earlier, Priya won one of Bangladesh's three golds in karate Tuesday.
