Narayan Dabhalkar, a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), was admitted to the Indira Gandhi government hospital in Nagpur after having serious breathing difficulties, due to Covid-19.?
However, when he arrived at the hospital, he witnessed a young woman pledging the hospital staff to take in his 40-year-old covid-infected husband, with their two children crying at the man's feet.?
Despite his low oxygen levels, Dabhakar requested to be discharged and to have his bed exchanged with the man in question. He was reported saying to the nurses, "I am 85. I have lived my life. Saving the life of a young man is more important. Their children are young...please give my bed to them."
Dabhakar died three days later, in his own home.??
