Head of the experts that carried out the surgery on the victim on June 6th 2016, Dr Premjit Ray, said:
“The boy came to our hospital in severe pain with a hook in his eye and bleeding but he was conscious. We quickly did a CT Scan and X-ray and then we conducted surgery for one hour to remove the rod. We did not need to open the brain in the end as there was no bleeding inside the brain. He could’ve been blinded for life but he was OK.
“If the family had waited any longer it could’ve been a lot more serious but they were quick in their actions and that surely helped save the boy’s eye.”
