A Guwahati man, Hemant Gogoi who had scaled the ‘anti-suicidal’ wall of Howrah Bridge last week, had an emotional reunion with his mother at Kolkata hospital.
The 31-year-old man was found hanging precariously from the pedestrian railings of the Howrah Bridge last Friday.
He was rescued with the help of cops, disaster management and fire brigade personnel who had struggled for several hours to rescue him.
He was brought to the hospital a day later and has been under treatment for the past few days.
Gogoi later told about his address and the contact numbers of his family to the hospital staff who got in touch with them. The family members came to see him on Friday.
According to the doctors, Gogoi was suffering from delusion and was kept on anti-psychotic drugs as a part of the treatment, according to a report published in the TOI.
Gogoi had been unable to give proper reply about reasons for his coming to Howrah station and the destination to where he was heading.
The man had found all his belongings missing when he had reached Howrah station.
The doctors suspected that he might have been drugged during the train journey.
The man still did not tell any of the hospital staff the reason for wanting to commit suicide.
The doctors will decide if he can be brought back to Guwahati with his family after doing a medical check-up.
