In solidarity with the ongoing farmers’ agitation, a private hospital in Bathinda treated Jagseer Singh, who was injured while participating in the “tractor parade” on Republic Day in Delhi, for free.

Jagseer, 32, hails from Pandher village in Barnala district and his photos had gone viral on the social media recently. Talking to The Tribune, neurosurgeon Dr Sorabh Gupta said: “After I came to know from my staff members that Jagseer is the same guy who was injured while participating in the tractor parade, we decided not to charge him for the treatment. At least this much we can do for the farmers of the state who have been protesting unrelentingly for their just cause. We also learnt that Jagseer comes from a financially deprived family so we decided to treat him for free.”

Jagseer said: “I am grateful to the doctors and staff who not only took good care of me but also didn’t charge me for the treatment. Initially they did charge some money, but as soon as they found out, they treated me for free. I am deeply touched with the empathy shown by them and we all should learn from such noble gestures.”
