Dobhi village

A 12-year-old boy from Dobhi village, who was crushed by a tractor on Saturday, was immediately operated and provided free treatment by a local medical practitioner. After the accident, the injured boy, Sandeep Kumar, was rushed to a local doctor.


However, the boy's father, Leelu Ram, was a farm labourer and could not afford the treatment. The doctor, Tarun Sapra, agreed to operate the injured boy and provide him free treatment. After seven hours of surgical intervention, the boy was declared out of danger. When asked about the doctor's timely help, Ram said, "There are still a few doctors, who do not run after money, but take care of the poor."
