Nagpur News: A stroke of destiny has not only shattered a budding youth’s dream to become policeman but has put his very life in serious jeopardy. Moreover, family life of the youth has also been left in tatters.

The youth, Sunil Yele (26), a native of Village Jambhulni in Sangli District, had come to Nagpur for testing his muscles in police recruitment drive and become a policeman. The drive was being held from June 6. Sunil left for Nagpur on June 5 and appeared for physical test on June 6. However, during the 5-km run test, Sunil fainted and fell on ground, unconscious. The policemen present at the spot took Sunil to Lata Mangeshkar Hospital on Hingna Road. But when his elder brother reached Nagpur the next day, Sunil was shifted to Orange City Hospital. The doctors at the hospital diagnosed Sunil and informed that he was suffering from sunstroke. Unfortunately, the sunstroke left Sunil with multiple organ failure and in critical condition. The temperature on June 6 was recorded a tormenting 46.7 degree Celsius.

Since June 6, Sunil Yele is being administered treatment in ICU of Orange City Hospital. Sunil is middle sibling among three brothers, all well-educated but unemployed. His father died 12 years ago. Sunil, who runs a tailoring shop, got married just six months ago. In the quest to become policeman, Sunil tried his luck in the past also but in vain. Now, the stroke of moment has not only shattered his dream to pieces but he himself lies in hospital battling for life with multiple organ failure. And family in distress. Sunil’s elder brother Datta has managed Rs 60,000 by mortgaging 1.5 acre ancestral land for his treatment. But the amount is proving to be nutshell in penury in the face of vast cost of medical treatment that lay ahead. The hospital has estimated the medical treatment to be around Rs 4 lakh, or even more.

Now, only one question is pricking Datta Yele: How to manage such a big amount? Sangli is top NCP leader and Home Minister R R Patil’s district. And he is emerging the only hope for Sunil’s family members. They have too demanded help from Maharashtra Government to overcome the difficult period the Nagpur summer thrust upon them.
