Taking to media persons after handing over ex-gratia to deceased vounteer’s mother, Subba Reddy said that it is very unfortunate that the 28-year old Mothe Suman died due to a fatal fall from the second floor of Seva Sadan -2 in Tirumala while he was in Srivari Seva between July 1 to July 4.
"After struggling for life on ventilator at SVIMS super speciality hospital for almost a week, he breathed his last on July 9, he said. We came to know that his economic back ground is very poor and he is the bread winner for his family consisting of his ailing mother.
The board has decided to do a bit and as a humane gesture we sanctioned an ex-gratia of Rs.5 lakhs including Insurance cover while a couple of board members including Ms Prasanthi Reddy and Ms Sudha Narayana Murthy have donated Rs.one lakh each to the mother of deceased volunteer as a token gesture", he added.
