Guj man writes to PM seek­ing eu­thana­sia nod for ail­ing son

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

Ra­jkot: A cou­ple from Savarkundla town in Gujarat’s Am­reli dis­trict en­joyed rare happy mo­ments in the last two years when PM Naren­dra Modi ar­ranged for free med­i­cal treat­ment for their ail­ing 12-year-old son, in re­sponse to their hand­writ­ten let­ter seek­ing help for their son’s de­bil­i­tat­ing neu­rolo- gi­cal dis­ease. But a year on, di­a­mond pol­isher Di­nesh Maisurya has writ­ten to the PM, this time seek­ing eu­thana­sia per­mis­sion for his son, Parth.

“Parth suf­fers seizures 8-10 times in a minute. He has been in this con­di­tion for 15 months. We can’t bear his suf­fer­ing any­more,” said Maisurya.
