A Kolkata Police Constable sustained an unfortunate injury to his right eye after being hit by the cricket ball, which, as far as one knows, was the result of the six smashed by David Miller during Kings XI Punjab’s (KXIP) match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Eden Gardens on May 9. 

As per the reports in DNA, the 53-year old constable Alok Aich is undergoing treatment at a hospital in Alipore in Southern Kolkata, and is believed to have lost his vision in his right eye. 

When the incident took place, Aich was instantaneously shifted to Cricket Association of Bengal’s (CAB) medical centre, but when his condition started to deteriorate, he was immediately shifted to the hospital in Alipore, where he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). 

Rajeev Mishra, the Special Additional and Joint Commissioner of Kolkata Police, described the incident as unfortunate and assured that the department will do everything possible for Aich’s health and family. 

He said: 

“This is a very tragic incident. It is extremely saddening to learn that he has lost his right eye. We are going to extend all kinds of help to him and his family. We will make sure he gets the best treatment at the hospital.” 

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly also sympathized with the constable but he maintained that Miller should not be held responsible for the incident.
