New Delhi: "I will be back some day."
This is how the Taiwanese victim of the Jama Masjid firing
incident summed up his emotions as he prepared to return to
his country after not a very pleasant experience he had in
Chiang Ko, who was shot in the stomach and was
hospitalised for over a week at the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash
(LNJP) hospital, left the country Monday, but with a hope that
the culprits will be identified soon.
The crew of TVBS channel was fired upon by
unidentified gunmen on September 19, injuring two of them.
Chiang, who was admitted with a bullet injury in the
abdomen on September 19, was discharged today and flew back
to his country.
He was accompanied by a doctor who reached New Delhi
from Taiwan last evening to accompany Chiang in the flight.
In a statement, before he left, Chiang profusely
thanked his tour guide, the driver, the tour manager and Luxe
India, his tour operator for what he called their
"professional" handling of the incident.
"I would like to say thank you to this hospital and
the staff for taking good care of me," he said.
He also said he was thankful to the Indian government
for the much-needed help and "great support" they gave him
during his difficult time.
"I will be back some day," he said.
The TV crew was in Delhi to shoot a travel programme
and were attacked near the 17th century Mughal monument.
The suspected terror attack was claimed by Indian
Mujahideen, but the police is yet to crack the case.
Chiang hopes the attack that marred his visit to this
country days ahead of the Commonwealth Games, is soon solved.
"I hope that Delhi Police will solve the case as soon
as possible," he said.

September 20, has already left.
