The third minor girl, who was found along with her other two cousins in an agriculture field in Unnao's village, was taken off ventilator support on Saturday after showing improvement, a senior police official said.

The victim was admitted to the hospital in intubated condition and was on bag and tube ventilation. Later, she was shifted to the ICU and treatment was given to her, the medical bulletin further stated.

On Saturday, the third day of treatment, the girl was put off the ventilator and has been going through spontaneous respiration, it added.

The girl has shown improvement and doctors decided to take her off the ventilator. However, she is still not in a condition to speak to the police and narrate the incident, Kanpur Deputy IG Preetinder Singh said.

The doctors are constantly monitoring the girl's condition and taking care of her.

Three girls - aged 16, 15 and 14 - were found in an agriculture field in Babuhara village of Asoha police station area by the villagers on Wednesday night when they did not return after leaving their house to take fodder for cattle. The local residents had rushed the teenagers, who are all related to each other, to a hospital where two of them were declared brought dead.

The 16-year-old girl was rushed to a district hospital and later referred to the hospital in Kanpur where she is undergoing treatment.

On primary assessment, the girl was found in shock. As a suspected case of poisoning, she was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the paediatric ward, the medical bulletin issued by the private hospital, where she is undergoing treatment, said.
