We, the Volunteers of DNipCare, express our heartfelt condolences on the sad demise of Mr. Thakur Das, who was an acute destitute patient on the pavements of Jantar Mantar Road, Delhi with his both hands grossly affected by maggots. He was shifted to Dr. R.M.L. Hospital, New Delhi with the assistance of Police at 8 PM on 26th November 2012, admitted there in the emergency ward, maggots got removed, dressed up his wounds and follow up treatment was on. However, unfortunately he died of cardiac arrest at 11.50 PM on 27th November 2012 in the hospital.
Again, at the end of the day, our belief is that he could get a dignified exit from this world looked after by the doctors and carers in an hospital instead of an unknown death under his dirty quilt in the pavement in this cold weather for the people to know, may be, only by the smell when his body starts decaying.
We also hope that any of his near and dear whose kindness and concern have not exhausted can get the information by recognizing him from the photograph.
Gen. Secretary, DNipCare
