STATE TIMES NEWS Bhadarwah: Two CRPF jawans of 33 Battalion stationed at Bhadarwah went beyond their call of duty to donate blood to an elderly man suffering from cancer as part of the forces’ ‘madadgaar’ initiative for locals of the UT of Jammu and Kashmir. “CRPF helpline received a call from a resident of Udrana village of Bhadarwah Irshad Hussain seeking help to obtain blood units for his ailing father Ghulam Hussain (84), who is suffering from leukemia,” said A Padama Kumar CO CRPF 33 Battalion. The requirement of the Hussain family was four units and they informed that while they have arranged for two bottles of blood from their family members, they still are looking for two units, CO Padama Kumar said. Two personnel of the 33 Battalion CRPF posted in Kotli Headquarter, Constables Santosh Kumar and Surinder Singh (driver) volunteered for the blood donation. Both the Jawans went to the Sub District Hospital Bhadarwah on Tuesday where the elderly man is admitted for treatment, he said. The CRPF, that is deployed for security duties in Jammu and Kashmir, had launched the 24×7 helpline-Madadgaar in June last year to help any resident who is in distress. The helpline is manned by the CRPF personnel.
