Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Wednesday called on S Lakshmanan, Inspector in the Special Investigation Division, which was formed for nabbing terror suspects, who suffered serious injuries in the Putur operation and lauded his brave act.

Jayalalithaa presented a cheque for `15 lakh to Madhuben, Lakshmanan’s wife, as a token of appreciation of the bravery shown by him and advised the doctors to provide the best possible treatment to Lakshmanan so that he could return to good health soon.

“We are all proud of you Mr Lakshmanan. You are an outstanding example of how a brave man in the Police Department should act. You have become a model for all others,” the Chief Minister told the recuperating police officer, now being treated at Sri Ramachandra Medical College and Research Institute at Porur. 

The Chief Minister also told Lakshmanan that she had gone through his medical report and it was astonishing that he was still alive (going by the seriousness of injuries suffered).

“God alone has saved you.  You have much more to accomplish in your career. I have enquired with the doctors and they say that you will be all right very soon. The State government will bear all the expenditure for your treatment. We have announced a one-step accelerated promotion to you,” she said.

The Chief Minister promised Lakshmanan that he need not worry about the future of his children.

“We stand guarantee for your children’s future,” she said.

Chief Secretary Sheela Balakrishnan, Home Secretary Niranjan Mardi and Director General of Police K Ramanujam were present on the occasion.

During the nabbing operations in Putur on October 5, Lakshmanan was assaulted by the terror suspects with lethal weapons and sustained serious injuries.
