Delhi based Jitender Singh who runs a social-service organisation called ‘Shahid Bhagat Singh Sewa Dal’ more than 2,000 people since the outbreak of the pandemic. These individuals were all strangers who were left unidentified by their own getting feared of contracting coronavirus. 

Singh who belongs from the Delhi-NCR area is starting his work at 7 am these days and is ending in the parking lot of his house where he sleeps inside an ambulance used by his organisation.

While talking to TOI Jitender said that he doesn’t want the virus to spread to his family members. His organisation believes in giving a respectable farewell to the dead and they have been doing this for over two decades now. But the number of dead bodies that are arriving in the wake of the coronavirus strike has even shaken his spirit. It breaks his heart.

Meanwhile, earlier this year Jitender Singh had received the honourable Padma Shri for his social work.
