Gadag: Amidst the fear of contracting coronavirus, an ITBP jawan has isolated himself at his farm in Gadag. Prakash Haigar is serving at the Arunachal Pradesh ITBP battalion. Prakash had tested negative on his arrival in Bengaluru and was advised to be under home quarantine.

Just like a jawan’s attitude of placing others before self, Prakash too didn’t want others to be victims of coronavirus. Braving rain and cold he chose to isolate himself from the village, 2 kms away in his farm. Prakash has a family of 2 children who live in Iraq with his wife.
