Attacked Delhi Police officer undergoing treatment at AIIMS


New Delhi, Oct 17 :

A senior Delhi Police officer, who was Thursday injured in an incident of road rage here, is undergoing treatment at AIIMS and is doing “absolutely fine”, an AIIMS official said Friday.

“Amit Singh was brought to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Trauma Centre Thursday. We performed a scan on him and he has a fracture of the nasal bone,” the official told IANS.

The official added that Singh — who was attacked with a helmet and sustained injuries on his nose, head and face — was now recuperating under the ENT department at the hospital.

“He is otherwise doing absolutely fine, and will be discharged either today (Friday) or tomorrow (Saturday),” the official said.

Amit Singh, assistant commissioner of police in the Special Cell, was going to his office when his car was hit by another car, driven by a juvenile, in south Delhi’s Nizamuddin area around 4.30 p.m Thursday.

The class 11 student was apprehended and sent to a juvenile home, while his mother, Rajani, and her second husband, Yogesh, were arrested for attacking the police officer who was not in his uniform.

Rajani and Yogesh, who were following the minor on a motorcycle, were arrested on various charges, including attempt to murder. They had married five years back.

Police said the accused couple own a business of tyres and are residents of south Delhi’s Greater Kailash area.

All three were returning back home after meeting a relative in Nizamuddin area Thursday evening.
