Madhya Pradesh police inspector Daulatram Jogawat, who came under the spotlight after writer Shobhaa De fat-shamed him in a tweet, has developed post-operative complications following a bariatric surgery in Mumbai on March 2.

Jogawat was operated at Saifee Hospital in Mumbai by Dr Muffazal Lakdawala. He was discharged from the hospital on March 7 and returned to Neemuch.

He was fine for a few days before developing complications. When his condition deteriorated on Tuesday night, he was admitted to a nursing home in Neemuch.

Dr Vipul Garg who is treating Jogawat said the patient had not eaten anything for the last 36 hours and he was also suffering from loose motion. He had fever for the last five days and also having difficulty in passing urine.

Dr Garg said he was running some blood tests and informed Dr Neha and Dr Aparna, who are associates of Dr Lakdawala, about the problems Jogawat was facing.

Daulatram Jogawat before he developed insulin imbalance making him obese.

After Shobha De’s tweet, a hurt 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.

When Shobhaa De’s post went viral there were several offers to treat Jogawat and one of them was from well known bariatric surgeon Dr Lakdawala. Jogawat was admitted to the Saifee Hospital on February 26.

After the operation Shobhaa De who faced a barrage of criticism for fat-shaming Jogawat tweeted, “What a positive and wonderful response from Daulatram Jogawat. Salute. God bless the cop.”

Jogawat on his part didn’t nurture any grudge against De. After the operation he thanked her and said he could come to Mumbai because of her tweet.
