The health of Shahdara Deputy Commissioner of Police Amit Sharma has improved, who was injured during clashes last week.
Acting Delhi Police Commissioner S N Shrivastava visited him in the hospital on Sunday, officials and family sources said.
Sharma was hospitalised with injuries to his head and hand during the violence over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) in Gokulpuri area of northeast Delhi on February 24.
Shrivastava, who has been given the additional charge of Delhi Police Commissioner following Amulya Patnaik’s retirement on Saturday, visited the Max Hospital in Patparganj and inquired about Sharma’s health.
“His health has improved and he was likely to be shifted to the ward later today. He has undergone the surgery. He is having his meals now and recovering from the serious injuries,” a family friend told reporters.
Sharma, a 2010-batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer, was admitted to the Max Hospital in Patparganj on Monday and underwent a surgery.
The officer’s vehicle had been set afire by protesters.
