A Jamia Millia Islamia employee is battling with life after allegedly falling from a train a few days ago.
One Afzal Shakeel wrote this on his timeline seeking financial help from Jamia alumni so that his treatment could be carried.
However, till the filing of the report the post could solicit only one comment, requesting him to post the message somewhere else so that alumni could contribute.
Shakeel could not be reached for his comment. However, another university staff confirmed about this incident to OKHLATIMES.COM.
He said he was travelling on a train and as sources told him that he met with accident while standing on the door after feeling suffocated, a claim that OKHLATIMES.COM was unable to independently verify.
Since the accident Mohd Akbar is in bad shape and is unable to tell what really happened to him on that fateful day.
“One of my childhood friends, Mohd Akbar, has a very serious train accident at Hyderabad. He studied with us up to 12th and then left the studies due to financial constrains. Akbar is a Jamia employee working at clerical post. He is the only source of income for his family. Currently he is under treatment at Yashoda Hospital Hyderabad. He is struggling for his life.
“He can survive if he is treated well. Treatment is costly and will cost about Rs 11 lakh. Jamia is not in a position to help him due to its rule book. We all old friends could arrange about Rs 5.0 lakh till day but there is a long way to go. Anybody who is interested to come forward for this cause, please contribute. We have discussed with Ulemas and in Akbar’s case Zakat can also be given. If anybody is interested please contact me on WhatsApp I will share the account details of the concern person where in the money can be transferred directly…Plz… old boys do something if anyone is interested to help him I can provide all contact detail to verify,” wrote Shakeel.
Another Jamia staff, who is also looking after him, said Akbar didn’t marry so that he could look after his mother and sister.
