MSRTC counsel informed the high court that the formalities for reinstating the 41-year-old will be completed immediately after his medical report is received from Sassoon Hospital, Pune. The court had directed MSRTC to reinstate the driver and give him some other light duty, as recommended by Sassoon Hospital.

The resident of Bhor tehsil in Pune district has been suffering from HIV since more than five years. The state transport undertaking sacked him in May 2013, when he applied for some other light work in view of the ailment.
