OVER THREE weeks after she became the global face of the Brussels blasts terror attack on March 22, Jet Airways flight in-charge Nidhi Chapekar (42), who had sustained burn injuries during the twin blasts at Zaventum Airport , is on the road to recovery.
Chapekar is admitted at Grande Hospital de Chaleroi hospital in Belgium, where according to Jet Airways spokesperson, she was under “sedation for her comfort”.
“We are happy she is recovering well. We talk to her every day,” said Madhuri Chapekar, her sister-in-law.
According to Madhuri, Chapekar regained consciousness a week ago in the hospital where she was accompanied by her husband Rupesh and brother-in-law Nilesh Chapekar. Rupesh, who owns a factory in Mumbai, is currently back in Mumbai but is scheduled to fly back to Belgium soon.
The family, however, is not discussing anything related with the terror attack with her.
However, the date of Nidhi’s discharge has yet not been finalised.
According to the Chapekar family, Nidhi had sustained 15 per cent burn injuries along with a fractured foot. She, along with flight manager Amit Motwani, were the two Indian hurt during the terror attack.
In Chakala, Andheri, the Chapekar family resides in a 2BHK flat in a residential society where currently Nidhi’s both children Vrishi (11) and Vardhaan (14), Madhuri and her mother-in-law are awaiting her return.
Meanwhile, Motwani also continues to remain in a Belgium hospital undergoing treatment. “Both of them are stable and doing well,” a spokesperson attached with Jet Airways said.
