C'garh police, doctor decry Air Chief's remark
At a press conference in Bangalore, Browne had remarked that wireless operator Yem Lal Sahu was “recovering well”, and that an Air Force official had found him “sitting on a sofa having a cup of tea” last week.
Dr Sandeep Dave, director of Ramkrishna Care Hospital, where Sahu is admitted, told The Indian Express Friday, “What does he (Air Chief) mean by ‘having tea sitting on a sofa’? We will have to give him something to eat... He is on a soft diet. Just recently we began giving him something.”
“He (Sahu) remains in bed, we are trying some movements in his limbs. He is not in a condition to do anything. His police career is over. If they (IAF) do not understand his mental and physical condition, we cannot do anything. It is plain inhuman to make such statements,” Dr Dave added.
Dave refuted Browne’s claim that IAF officials had visited the hospital “last week”. He added that the officials who came had not consulted any doctor about Sahu’s condition.
“They were here just 2-3 days before, and left without meeting any doctor. Attendants requested them to meet us but they were not bothered, or probably did not have the time. How can you know
