Meerut. To combat the coronavirus, Mohinder Singh, a retired junior commissioned officer (JCO) from the Army, donated Rs 15.11 lakh from the gratuity, pension and earnings to the Prime Minister’s relief fund. This soldier's act is being praised by everyone.

He said, "Whatever I have obtained, I have obtained from this nation. Now I am returning the money of the nation for the nation in the corona war."

The courageous man, who misplaced one eye in the 1971 Indo-Pak struggle, reached Punjab and Sind Bank on Thursday with his spouse Suman Chaudhary and handed over the cheque to the supervisor.

Singh added, "I am now 85 years old. Where do I need to take the money? I am glad that people are coming forward to help the needy."

The couple said that they have two sons working in Germany and Vietnam and their girl is in Delhi.
