A string of television interviews and repeating the same account several times has made Manjit Singh numb. The 78-year-old legal adviser eventually broke down in front of the camera.
Singh received minor injuries when an Israeli embassy car was bombed right in front of his car on Monday.
"My first thought was that it was a bomb blast though we didn't see any biker. But before we could understand anything, the police whisked us to RML Hospital," Singh added.
Singh was coming back from Noida with his client Arun Sharma, who also received minor injuries, after the hearing of a case.
At first, Singh didn't tell his wife that he was injured in the blast. His wife Jasbeer Kaur said, "He told me to switch on the TV and watch news. I thought the attack must have happened somewhere. At 6pm, we got to know that he was also injured."
Driver's brave effort
Monday was a horrific day for Manoj Sharma, the 42-year-old driver of the embassy car.
He was driving Talyeshova Koren, wife of an Israeli embassy staff, to the American Embassy School to pick her children.
Though Sharma himself was injured in the blast, he left no stone unturned to save the life of his employer.
Narrating the incident, Sharma, who is employed at the Israeli embassy for the last one year said, "We were at the traffic signal when there was loud noise in the rear portion of our car. The windowpanes were shattered and its glasses hit near my eyes. I immediately helped madam out of the car and rushed to the embassy."
