In a rare yet positive human gesture, the Indian and Australian governments came forward to bring back the 25-year-old Arshdeep Singh, who is suffering from chronic renal failure, on Monday. He had moved to Australia from India in 2018 for higher education. Reportedly, Arshdeep Singh was diagnosed with chronic renal failure at a hospital in Melbourne last month but the Covid-19 restrictions made it difficult for the family to obtain visa. Then the governments of both the countries stepped in and the 25-year-old finally made it home.
It has also been reported that he landed at Delhi airport on Monday evening and taken to Gurugram's local hospital. Flight no 111 from Darwin was used to airlift Arshdeep which was operated by Qantas. Also Read : #ViralVideo: Now Himanshi Khurana Provides Financial Aid To The 10-Year Old Daily Wage Worker
