Arjun, the 15-year-old boy who was shot in the jaw during crossfire between rioters and police in the Trilokpuri clashes, is out of danger after a successful surgery.
However, his family said he is paralysed on one side. Doctors said he will be cured though the treatment will take some time.
Arjun was critical when he was admitted in a private hospital after the incident. “My son is out of danger and is recovering. He has been shifted from the ICU to a special ward in Max hospital,” Arjun’s father Ramesh said.
Arjun and his friend Ajeet were returning home from tuition classes on October 24, when they were hit by bullets that were allegedly fired by policemen to disperse rioters. Ajeet was shot in the back while Arjun took a bullet in the jaw, right outside Block 28 where they live.
