The bullet was successfully removed minus any complications. Hospital authorities revealed Rai had suffered the gun shot during a student agitation in Lucknow University way back in 1999. Due to this he suffered from quadriplegia for nearly two years.

Thereafter he recovered a good deal and returned to a normal life. , Rai has residual neurological impairment in his extremities, mainly in the right upper limb and some imbalance in the lower extremities for which he will undergo rehabilitation training programmes in Apollo hospitals in Hyderabad and Chennai.Rai’s condition was stable till reports last came in.
