CRPF official Cheeta discharged from AIIMS

After going through a number of surgeries, the commandant showed improvement and doctors finally discharged him after he spent a month long period in the hospital. "This is nothing short of a miracle".

According to doctors, the hope for vision returning to Cheetah's right eye is "bleak" although vision in his left eye, which to sustained splinter injuries, has been restored. "His eyes were closed, he was completely unconscious but the moment I saw him breathing, I knew he will make it through". "He had to undergo multiple brain surgeries including two CSF diversion (a procedure used to drain fluid from the brain) and several debridement (removal of damaged or infected tissues)", Hindustan Times quoted Dr Deepak Aggarwal, professor of neurosurgery at Aiims as saying.

"Cheetah also developed signs of sepsis due to his wounds which was managed by critical care specialists in ICU".

Nine bullets, 16 days in coma and over 30 days in ICU later, CRPF officer Chetan Cheeta has fought his way back to recovery.

Mr. Cheeta's wife Uma Singh said: "Doctors said he was in coma, but he would respond whenever I would meet him and hold his hand. That strengthened my faith that he was coming back to me", she said.

Cheetah was critically injured in an encounter in Kashmir's Bandipora district on February 14, in which at least three soldiers and one militant were killed. Before being rushed to the trauma centre, Cheetah was taken to the military hospital in Srinagar where he was given treatment to stop bleeding.
