Mangalore: State Food and Civil Supplies minister who is known to be a Good Samaritan was at it once again last night. Minister UT Khader rushed to the aid of a soldier bitten by snake in quick time and played a vital role in saving a precious life.

Santhosh, a soldier who took part in the surgical strikes against Pakistan last year had arrived to his native recently to attend a family function. Unfortunately, Santhosh was bitten by a snake and had been admitted at a private hospital in the city.

The hospital had asked for 10 injections but his family members ran out of clues to arrange them in quick time. With time running out, Santosh’s brother called minister Khader over phone at around 1.15am on the intervening night of Sunday and Monday.

On learning of emergency assistance to the snake bitten soldier, minister Khadar rushed to the hospital within 15 minutes of receiving the telephone call and met Santhosh who lay in the emergency ward.

After discussions with the doctor, Khader immediately arranged the required injections from the Government run Wenlock Hospital and got them administered to Santhosh in dire need. In a humane act, Khader again visited the hospital this morning to check Santhosh’s health condition.

The soldier is now recuperating at the hospital and his improving condition has brought in lot of relief to the worried family members.
