Virus: Nagpur's lake samaritan feeds poor affected by lockdown

Press Trust of India  |  Nagpur 

A man renowned for working

tirelessly and for free to fish out bodies from Gandhisagar Lake in Nagpur was on Tuesday seen feeding pavement dwellers hit hard by the lockdown in place to combat the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Jagdish Khare said hundreds of people living on footpaths depend on temples, charitable organisations and alms from people to get their daily meals, all of which are now on hold due to the near total shutdown in the city.

"I have collected food for 300-400 people and we are making the rounds of the footpath giving it to the homeless," Khare said.
