The incident is from Nana Peth area of the city. Social worker Sudhir Dhaval gave this information on social media. According to Sudhir, Nana Peth is a Corona hotspot area. That's why even the ambulance people were afraid to come here. Even the auto rickshawala was not ready to take this 57-year-old elderly to the hospital. Later a tampo one was prepared. But by then, everything was over. The elderly had died.
