NEEMUCH: The Madhya Pradesh police officer who was fat-shamed by writer-columnist Shobhaa De on Twitter has been admitted to a private hospital here after he took ill.

Inspector Daulatram Jogawat, the officer, was having fever for the last five days and his food intake had come down to almost zero, said Dr Vipul Garg of Garg Nursing Home where he was admitted last night.

"We are in touch with the experts of Saifee Hospital in Mumbai where he underwent gastric bypass surgery on March 2," Dr Garg added.

"The officer is responding to treatment and is out of danger," he said.

Jogawat (58) weighed 180 kg before he went under the knife.

Last month De tweeted picture of an overweight Jogawat in uniform, mocking the Mumbai police for "heavy bandobast" on a polling day in the city.

Mumbai police pointed out that he was an inspector with the Madhya Pradesh police.

After these tweets went viral, Dr Muffazal Lakdawala of Saifee Hospital offered to perform gastric bypass surgery on him. The surgery reduces the volume of stomach cavity to curb food intake
