Admn mitigates widow’s plight with pittance
Ludhiana April 19
Life has been an unending struggle for 38-year-old Radha Bai ever since the death of her husband in February. With no source of income the hapless widow is not only faced with the momentous task of feeding her three children, one of them mentally challenged, but also has to repay a debt of Rs 25,000 that her husband had taken for the marriage of their eldest daughter. Her husband, who was a rickshaw-puller, was hit by a train on the railway track near Model Gram on February 19. She said, she did not get any compensation for the death of her husband as is given to the kin of accident victims.
