Critically injured Manipur’s Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Arvind Kumar has been taken to Delhi where he would be treated at AIIMS hospital.

Kumar was treated at Raj Medicity hospital in Imphal’s North AOC with critical injuries after he allegedly shot himself on his lower chin with a .38 service revolver inside his office located in Imphal’s 1st Manipur Rifles campus on Saturday afternoon. 

The bullet passed through his head. 

A medical surgery to remove blood clot from his head was successfully conducted yesterday at around 2.30 pm and he was later shifted again to the ICU of the hospital. 

Even though the surgery was successfully conducted, doctors attending him observed possible blood clotting in his brain.

Some portions of his skull and brain were damaged due to the bullet injury, according to a hospital source.

He was taken to Delhi by special air ambulance for further treatment around 5.10 pm on Sunday. Kumar was accompanied by his wife and a woman IPS officer of the state police. 

Ahead of shifting the injured ADGP, state chief minister N Biren Singh paid a visit to the hospital to assess his condition in the afternoon.

“A team of highly skilled doctors at Raj Medicity briefed me on the condition of Arvind Kumar, IPS, ADGP (L&O), Manipur Police who was critically injured in an unfortunate incident yesterday,” Singh posted on his facebook account after the visit. 

Arvind Kumar is a 1992 batch IPS officer of the Manipur cadre and had served in the Intelligence Bureau as its Joint Director in New Delhi before returning to Manipur police around three months ago. 

He was recently posted as ADGP (law and order). 

Police are investigating the incident after registering a case to ascertain the cause of the incident. During an inquest in his office chamber where the officer allegedly shot himself, an empty case of a .38 revolver and other items have been recovered, sources said.

Arvind Kumar hails from Bihar and was staying with his wife at 2nd Manipur Rifles guest house in Imphal.
