Mumbai: On Sunday, 39-year-old IPS officer, Devashish Deo, who had been in the limelight last year for slapping a BJP worker in Kota over his misbehaviour, died. After 10 months long battle with injuries, while undergoing treatment for a prolonged illness at a private hospital speaks about this braveheart’s struggle for survival.
Meanwhile, a police spokesperson mentioned that Deo was a 2013-batch officer, who was posted as a Deputy Director at Rajasthan Police Academy (RPA).
On the fatal night, Devashish Deo was sorting out a dispute over the Mahant chair of famous Brahma Temple of Pushkar along with some officers and temple priests. Suddenly, the chair on which he was sitting broke down and he ended up falling on the stairs after which he was immediately rushed to the hospital with serious head and spinal cord injury.
The brave officer valiantly fought against all odds for around 10 months in the hospital. But, ultimately he succumbed to his injuries on October 29, 2017.
The police spokesperson said that Deo had sustained grievous head and spinal injuries, for which he was admitted to a government hospital in Pushkar. He was later referred to Fortis Hospital. He was then shifted to Imperial Hospital where he breathed his last.
Devashish was in news last year, when he publicly slapped a BJP Worker for misbehaving in Kota, for which BJP activists of the area demanded punishment and consequently he was transferred out of Kota. Whereas, on the Contrary some media reported that slapping incident has nothing to do with the accident.
Later after his death, some media combined both of this news giving an impression that BJP is responsible for his death.
