According to the police, the 18-year old athlete was brought to the casualty of the state-run Medical College hospital around 6.15 a.m.

The doctors, after putting three stitches, referred the athlete to the psychiatry wing. But the police is looking for the athlete, who according to them, has slipped away.

The athlete is reported to be out of danger.

The athlete went away without waiting for further medical advice from the psychiatry department.

Sources said the immediate provocation for the young athlete, who is training to be a short distance runner, could be a theft that was reported in their hostel and a few inmates were questioned by authorities.

Lately, Sports Authority of India (SAI) was in the news in the state after four women athletes consumed a poisonous fruit last month at the SAI Water Sports centre in Alappuzha. While one athlete died the next day, the lives of the three others were saved.
