Don't need award money, give it to needy Covid patients: Braveheart who saved boy from speeding train

Apr 22, 2021 20:07 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Railway pointsman Mayur Shelke has also refused to take cash awards from private organisations, saying the money should be given for the treatment of needy coronavirus patients.

He would be donating half the Rs 50000 award he has received from his department to the family of a six-year-old child whom he rescued from the path of a speeding train in Mumbai.

He has decided to donate Rs 25,000 to ensure "bright future" for Sahil Shirsat, the boy, whose mother suffers from visual impairment.
