The bullets hit his ear, lung and other parts of the body too.

Though after recovering from the heavy wounds, Teotia requested a permission to attend Navy’s mountaineering expedition, but doctors didn’t give him the required permission for medical issues.The former Navy officer was determined that he would show the Navy that he is fully fit and he is capable to do and that’s why he started participating in marathons.
