New Delhi :

Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju met CRPF officer Chetan Cheeta on Wednesday who is recovering in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Trauma Centre from injuries sustained while fighting militants in Bandipora of Jammu and Kashmir on February 14.

After meeting the CRPF officer, Rijiju said that the former is doing fine and it is a miracle as the officer has recovered from coma.   

The minister recalled the day when Cheeta was brought to Delhi from Srinagar. The minister said it was diffcult to imagine whether the injured officer will talk to him. 

Rijiju said he is proud of the CRPF officer.

As per reports published in TOI, Cheeta had received serious injuries in head and later slipped into coma but now he has recovered from the critical phase and started giving proper response.

A doctor informed that Cheeta’s GCS (A test to map the seriousness of injury) score was M3 but now he has responded well and the score is M6. He said Cheeta is stable.
