S-24 Pgns admin urges Ham Radio to reunite Nepali man
Kolkata: The South 24 Parganas district administration has urged the West Bengal Radio Club — an organisation of Ham Radio operators in the state — to reunite a Nepali man who has been lodged at a district hospital for more than three months with nobody turning up to take his responsibility.
The person in his 70's was found on the road writhing in pain with injuries on his hands and feet on June 23. Some local people admitted him at the Diamond Harbour district hospital. The person was unable to talk and was gesturing the injury on his left hand. The septuagenarian has already recovered but is still unable to communicate anything and nobody turned up to claim the responsibility of the person. However, they have somehow understood that he is a Nepali national. The hospital authorities through the district administration informed the ham operators to help them in uniting the elderly person. "We have already informed the matter to the Nepal Embassy in the city and they have circulated his photograph through the embassy in the neighbouring country. We have also linked up with one of our counterparts in Nepal who has begun the search operation for locating his address or family members," Ambarish Nag Biswas, secretary of West Bengal Radio Club said. The state Radio Club had travelled to Nepal when it was hit by earthquake in April 2015 and was able to set up communication after some days of hard labour. The entire communication system was jeopardised.
The Radio Club that has been setting up stations at Gangasagar Mela for the last few years has been responsible in uniting many lost pilgrims with their family.
