The obese Madhya Pradesh inspector at whom columnist Shobhaa De had poked fun at over his physical condition in a tweet, is now in Mumbai to undergo a check-up. Daulatram Jogewat left last week for Mumbai, he said that a “wrong” tweet by Shobhaa De has changed his life.

“I thank the media which took up the issue after the tweet by Shobhaa De. Hopefully, I will get a better life,” Jogewat told PTI. He had met a staffer of Mumbai-based Centre for Obesity and Digestive Surgery, Flyod D’ Souza, who said, “after the tests, a medical expert will take a call whether he should be administered medicine or operated upon.” He met D Souza last night. After De’s tweet she was trolled and criticised for body shaming a person and several hospitals had offered free treatment to the inspector.

Jogewat had reacted to De’s tweet showing hurt, tweeting that his obesity was a result of hormonal disorder. “I am hurt with Shobhaa De’s tweet poking fun at me. I have put on weight due to hormonal disorder following my gall bladder operation in 1993,” Inspector Jogewat, who weighs around 180 kg had told PTI.

De had tweeted a picture of Jogewat last week, when he was at a police arrangement during Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) polls, and tweeted “Heavy police bandobast in Mumbai today.” Though she had incorrectly identified Jogewat as a personnel of Mumbai Police.

De also yesterday tried to made amends by tweeting, “Mumbai/ Maharashtra Police Pranaam. No offence intended. MP Police, Consult a dietician, if it’s an asli, undoctored image doing the round.”
Coming in support of a member of their cadre, Mumbai police also hit back at De’s tweet, saying, “We love puns too Ms De but this one is totally misplaced.Uniform /official not ours. We expect better from responsible citizens like you.”
