Sureshbhai’s condition improving: attorney
The health condition of Sureshbhai Patel, who was assaulted in the U.S. State of Alabama by a police officer that left him partially paralysed, showed improvement, his attorney has said.
“Due to his hard work and motivation, Mr. Patel is improving faster than expected though he has a long way to go,” Henry F. Sherrod said on Saturday.
“His grip strength and right leg are improving. The left leg is improving but more slowly. He can speak and eat,” said Mr. Sherrod, who has sued the City of Madison and two police officials on charges of brutal assault for no fault of his.
The 57-year-old, who is undergoing treatment at a Huntsville hospital in Alabama, was assaulted by the police on a walkway in a neighbourhood of Madison City on the morning of February 6, without any provocation just because he did not know English and was unable to answer their queries about his identity and address.
