“He was rushed to Saksham Hospital near Rookee from where he was later referred to Max Hospital in Dehradun,” he added.
The accident happened at Mohammadpur Jat in Manglaur.
Dr Sushil Nagar, who treated Pant urgently, said the cricketer did not suffer any broken bones but had a ligament injury in his knee which would require further investigation.
“When he was brought to our hospital, he was fully conscious and I spoke to him. He wanted to surprise his mother and was going home,” Dr Nagar told PTI.

“He had two lacerations (blunt trauma) to his head but I did not put stitches. I recommended him to Max Hospital where a plastic surgeon could see him.
“However, x-ray reports carried out at our hospital suggest that there are no bone injuries. Yes, there is a torn ligament on his right knee. The severity of the situation can only be detected after further investigation and detailed MRI.”
Ligament damage has different degrees and it can take 2 to 6 months to regain full physical form.
