Bhubaneswar: A family in Berhampur have thanked Odisha cadre IPS officer and Central Electricity Supply Utility of Odisha (CESU) CEO Arun Bothra after whose intervention they were able to get camel milk from Rajasthan for their autistic child in Berhampur.
After the news of Bothra helping a Mumbai-based woman by sourcing camel for her three-and-a-half year-old autistic child made headlines, maternal uncle of a three-year-old autistic child in Berhampur contacted the IPS officer and was able to get the required help with the joint effort of officials from various departments.
Three-year-old Swastik of Berhampur is a autistic child and on doctors’ recommendation he was being fed with camel milk for last few months. But because of the lockdown to contain spread of coronavirus pandemic, his family were unable to source the milk. It was when Swastik’s maternal uncle Chandan Kumar Acharya contacted Bothra on his twitter handle.
Following it, Bothra had a discussion with Chandan on how the camel milk can be sourced and delivered to the family. With the help of SETU, an initiative by IRTS (Indian Railway Traffic Service) probations, a package of camel milk was delivered at Bhubaneswar Railway Station on Thursday.
Chandan had arrived at Bhubaneswar Railway Station in his car, after taking required permission from Berhampur Police, and received the package containing 10 litres camel milk and two packets of camel milk powder. He then returned to Berhampur and delivered the milk to Swastik’s family. Meanwhile, Chandan has been asked to remain in 14-day quarantine.
