Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh’s son Salil Deshmukh recently came to aid of a man from Uttar Pradesh who is stuck in Nagpur due to the lockdown. Salil helped the man to find safe accommodation at a shelter home after he ran out of money.

As per a report in TOI, the man Pradeep Ramchandra, who hails from Uttar Pradesh and is a CCTV expert technician, went to Yavatmal for some work before the lockdown. He returned Nagpur on the day the lockdown was announced by PM Narendra Modi to contain the spread of coronavirus.

Unable to return to his home because of non –availability of travelling options, Ramchandra started staying a lodge in Nagpur. As Ramchandra ran out of money, he contacted social worker and Youth Congress member Fazloor Rehman Qureshi. Qureshi contacted the cops who asked the lodge owner to let Ramchandra stay.

As the lodge did not have any arrangement for food, Qureshi thought of shifting Ramchandra to a shelter home and contacted Salil Deshmukh for the same. Deshmukh immediately got in touch with social worker Nutan Rewatkar for the same. Qureshi and Rewatkar took Sadar Police’s help to shift Ramchandra to a shelter home in the city.
