Kripanand Tripathi Ujela, a 1994-batch officer, is now undergoing treatment in a hospital in Hyderabad after being diagnosed with dengue fever.

“Madam Governor saved my life. She helped me like a mother. Otherwise, I could not have made it to the hospital,” Ujela told PTI over phone from Hyderabad on Saturday.

Ujela, who belongs to the Andhra Pradesh cadre, is currently posted as Additional DGP (Road Safety).

The Governor, who is a doctor by profession, attended to the IPS officer after he complained of uneasiness during the flight to the Telangana capital around Friday midnight.

“My heart rate at that time was just 39 when Madam Governor measured it. She advised me to bend forward and helped me relax, which stabilised my breathing,” Ujela said.

Upon landing in Hyderabad, he directly went to a hospital where a series of tests were conducted on him.

He was diagnosed with dengue and his platelets count dropped to 14,000.

“Had Madam Governor not been on that flight, I could not have made it. She gave me a new life,” Ujela said, expressing his gratitude to Soundararajan.
