Beggar Donated Rs 6.61 Lakh To Pulwama Martyrs


Jodhpur: The trustees of an elderly woman beggar in Ajmer, who had died in August 2018, have fulfilled her last wish by donating her savings worth Rs 6.61 lakh to the martyrs of Pulwama attack, TOI reported.

The deceased woman Nandini Sharma had left behind a ‘will’ that her savings be used for the nation and the society. Sharma had accumulated the amount by begging outside Ambe Mata Temple at Bajrangarh in Ajmer. She had made the habit of depositing the money every day in the bank and had nominated two trustees to safeguard her account post her death.

The trustees waited for a right opportunity to donate the amount since the time of her death. Post Pulwama attack, they were moved by the tragedy and decided that donating the money to the martyrs of Pulwama attack will be a real tribute to Sharma.

“The trustees came to the district administration office on Wednesday and expressed their desire to donate money to the chief minister relief fund for the attack victims.
The legal cell completed the formalities following which, the amount was accepted and a certificate was issued to them,” said Ajmer collector Vishwa Mohan Sharma.
