Flying Sikh Milkha Singh celebrated his 91st birthday with his family and friends at home. He accepted the greetings of his well-wishers and, like every year, hoped that the “country wins an Olympics gold in athletics in his lifetime”.

On his 91st birthday, Milkha promised to help Tania and Badal, two Mohali kids, who were orphaned on November 12 when their mother, their breadwinner, died in a hit-and-run case near the Sector 69-70 T-point. ‘’We will definitely help these children through our Milkha Charitable Trust. I will discuss with them how I can be of any help to them. The privileged section of society should come forward to help needy people and make a difference in their lives,’’ he said.

Twenty-four-year-old Meenu Chauhan, employed as a peon in a private firm, suffered a fatal head injury while cycling back home after finishing her job when a motorcyclist hit her at the Sector 69-70 intersection and fled the spot.

Battling for life, she was taken to Mayo Hospital, then to the Civil Hospital, Phase 6, then to the GMSH, Sector 16, and finally breathed her last on a stretcher outside the PGI. Her last rites were performed by neighbours in Sohana village as no one came forward as her guardian. A case has been registered at the Phase 8 police station in Mohali.
