MP cop, who was ridiculed by Shobhaa De on Twitter loses 15 kg, resumes work
The Madhya Pradesh police officer who underwent bariatric surgery in Mumbai after being fat-shamed by author Shobhaa De, has resumed work after losing 15 kg.
Daulatram Jogwat told Hindustan Times that he was feeling fit and was following the instructions given to him by Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, the surgeon who treated him at Mumbai’s Saifee Hospital.
Dr Lakdawala said that Jogawat, who weighed 182 kg before the surgery, should touch the 100 kg mark in a year if he continues his routine.
Doctors said uncontrolled diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, lymphedema and other ailments that Jogawat is suffering from might go away in the next few months.
During the BMC eletions, Shobhaa De had posted a photograph of Jogawat with the caption, ‘heavy police bandobast in Mumbai today’ in February and faced a heavy backlash by Twitter users.
After being fat-shamed, Jogawat had pointed out that it was due to an insulin imbalance brought about by a gall bladder operation that he was fat and not because of overeating. He then underwent bariatric surgery in Mumbai.
