Maj Gupta's medical condition is a matter of great concern for all of us. It is really laudable that Gen Satbir and other members of the Steering Committee took timely and prompt action to rush medical team with ambulance to provide necessary medical aid. I feel proud of their devotion to the ESM cause and convey my heartfelt compliments for the same. I also pray and wish speedy recovery of Maj Gupta. Kindly convey my best wishes to Maj Gupta and his family members. I also take this opportunity to cnagratulate you all for the action taken to deposit medals with the President.
With regards to all,
Maj Bhupal Singh, Veteran
Major DC Gupta, who was part of the IESM team coming from Kanpur to deposit medals at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, suffered a stroke while in the train.
The Kanpur team members in the train, informed Maj Gen Satbir Singh, Vice Chairman IESM, on mobile phone about Maj Gupta’s illness around 9.00 AM on 25 Oct 09. Gen Satbir took very prompt action and managed to rush an ambulance from Fortis Hospital to Ghaziabad railway station. Instead of first coming to Delhi, the medical team took charge of Maj DC Gupta at Ghaziabad railway station and rushed him to Noida Fortis Hospital. This saved very valuable time for the patient.
His three companions, Capt SNSharma, (Rank) CV Singh and Sgt K Kapur accompanied Maj Gupta in the ambulance to Noida.
All the ESM at Fortis Noida have been met by Gp Capt VK Gandhi, Secy Gen IESM and Col RP Chaturvedi, Member Steering Committee IESM and Coordinator ECHS Division of IESM. The necessary documents have been collected from Fortis Hospital to regularize and have an emergency referral made out tomorrow (26 Oct) at Noida polyclinic. That would take care of paper work.
Necessary contact numbers have been given to CV Singh. CV Singh is staying on while Capt Sharma and Sgt Kapur are returning to Kanpur late night. In the meantime, Maj Gupta's son is expected tonight. We wish veteran Maj DC Gupta a speedy recovery.
