Apparently, after being discharged two days ago, Balwant had boarded a bus headed towards The Mines area.
“We have offered her some cash but she refused and said that he’s like my father. A big Thank You to the wonderful lady and also a big thank you to Seetharam Restaurant who provided him blanket yesterday to sleep and provided food.
