New Delhi: The brave Indian soldier Chetan Cheetah who staked his life in an encounter with terrorists in Bandipore and who was battling for life after being shot at nine bullets is all set to be discharged from the hospital.

The CRPF Commanding Officer of the 45th battalion Chetan Kumar Cheetah-who was shot multiple bullets during the encounter and was airlifted from Srinagar to AIIMS Trauma Center in Delhi two months ago for further treatment, is reported to be fit and ready for discharge.



According to doctors, the 45-year-old Chetan suffered injuries on his head, his right eye, waist, upper limbs, hands and pelvic region and suffered a ‘maxillofacial’ injury.

More than two months he fell into a coma which lasted over a month, but then after treatment is now ready to go home. Doctors are calling Cheetah’s recovery has been nothing short of a miracle and they are planning to send Cheetah home today itself.


Doctors at AIIMS called it the rebirth of a soldier and credited the family for the miraculous recovery. “Families usually are in denial mode, but his wife was rock solid,” Dr Anurag Srivastav, chief doctor at AIIMs trauma centre said.

The 45-year-old commanding officer of the 45th Battalion of CRPF led his team to the Parray Mohalla encounter of Hajin area in Bandipora on February 14th.

A Lashkar-e-Taiba terror suspect attacked, and in the ensuing encounter, three security personnel died and eight, including a civilian, were injured. Witnesses said Cheetah fired 16 rounds even after taking bullets on his body.

On March 16, a month after the attack, he was moved out of the ICU and taken off ventilator support.

He was given food orally for the first time in one and half months, much to the relief of the doctors and his colleagues in the CRPF on March 20th.



‘Love jihad’: Samajwadi Party to oppose law in UP Assembly, here’s why

A day after Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel signed the ordinance on forced religious conversions, the Samajwadi Party announced that it will oppose the ‘love jihad’ law when it comes up in the Assembly next month.

Samajwadi Party (SP)President Akhilesh Yadav said his party is not in favour of such a law and will oppose it strongly.

“On one hand, the government offers Rs 50,000 to those opting for inter-caste and inter-religion marriages, and on the other, they have brought this law. We will ask the government to bring a law which guarantees doubling of farmers’ income instead,” he said.

The SP chief accused the BJP government of planning to sell a government-owned shopping mall worth Rs 1,000 crore to a private entity at throwaway prices. He further added that an expressway was also being sold in a similar fashion.

“This will be probed when time comes. We will expose the corruption this government is indulging in,” he said.

Akhilesh further said it is ironic that the government talks of zero tolerance for corruption but, in an international survey, the country has figured on the top of the list of nations where bribery is most prevalent.

Reacting to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s announcement of setting up 10,000 MW solar power units, Yadav said, “He does not know anything about a solar panel. During the SP government, we had set up a solar power unit. The unit produced enough power to meet the needs of an entire village, but this government snapped the supply saying the villagers have not paid bills.”
