- After the corona infection, both the lungs of the assistant jail superintendent of Ludhiana Central Jail have been damaged. The doctor told the cost of the transplant to be Rs 80 lakh. Harjinder Singh, who is fighting for life, has written a letter to the Chief Minister of Punjab, seeking help for treatment.
Harjinder Singh, posted as Assistant Superintendent in Central Jail, Ludhiana, is currently fighting for his life at SPS Hospital. Both his lungs have been damaged due to a corona infection, so the doctors treating him say that he will have to get a lung transplant done. About 80 lakh rupees will be spent on this.
Harjinder Singh’s case was sent to the doctor’s panel by the Commissioner of Police, Ludhiana, but the reply has received that wait for a month. Eventually, the victim Harjinder Singh sent a letter in the name of the Chief Minister, in which he said that the money that the family will get after my death, if the same money is found at this time, then his children can avoid being orphaned. Former police officers who went to support Harjinder Singh in this war have also come down.
In the letter sent to the Chief Minister, the victim has written that he was admitted to SPS Hospital in Ludhiana on April 6 after coming to Covid-19 positive. On 22 April, his corona report came negative but till now his lungs are not working properly. Doctors say that he needs to get a lung transplant done. It will cost around 80 lakhs. That is why it is requested that the money that the government will give to the family after death. And the money should be spent on their treatment.
The government has spent crores on a person sitting on hunger strike for five years
Retired ADCP Satish Malhotra has asked the government and officials to look into the matter. Malhotra said that he is very surprised that a person is admitted to DMC on hunger strike for the last five years. The Punjab government is bearing all the expenses of his treatment, till now crores of rupees have been spent. While a police officer was caught by Corona while on government duty, the government should spend money for his treatment. The government should immediately provide financial assistance for a lung transplant so that a promising officer of Punjab Police can be saved.
