In a rather tragic incident ,National Level Wrestler Vishal Kumar Verma , aged 25 passed away after being electrocuted in Ranchi’s Jaipal Singh Stadium . The stadium was inundated and dilapidated and reportedly a short circuit took place killing Mr. Verma while he was there for his routine practice . He was found lying unconscious by localites and was declare dead on arrival by doctors at Sardar Hospital , Ranchi .
Jharkhand Wrestling Association Chief Bhola Singh condemned the incident and declared a compensation amount of Rs. 1 lakh to the deceased’s family and Rs. 10000 per month as an addendum .
While tall claims are made about equality of sports in this country the step motherly treatment to other sports and sportsmen has resulted in such a disastrous incident . Vishal was the sole bread winner in his family of 6 unmarried sisters and after this incident , they’re clueless about their future too. It doesn’t matter who is responsible or who should take responsibility , that a young soul lost it’s ground due to chronic negligence of our law makers n bureaucrats again exposes the shortcomings of our system.
May the departed’s soul rest in peace and his family gets immense strength to overcome this tragedy . Om Shanti !
