Bengaluru: What a parent does to save their child's life is well known. One such case has come to light from Karnataka, where a father cycled 300 kilometres and brought essential medicines. The father, who works as a construction worker, cycled for three days from his native village Ganigankoppal to Bengaluru near Bannur in Tarasipur taluk to arrange life saving medicines for his son.

The child has been facing health problems since childhood. He has been treated by doctors from the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS), Bengaluru for the past 10 years. His father used to go to the hospital every two months to buy medicines. However, the father could not go to Bengaluru to take the medicine due to COVID-19 lockdown. He decided to go to the hospital to buy medicine on a bicycle.

He left Ganigankoppal on May 23 and returned home with medicine on May 26. He told the media, "Doctors had said that if the medicines are stopped before the boy turns 18, the chances of an epilepsy attack are high. I travelled on a bicycle. The doctors in Nimhans gave me Rs 1,000 when they learnt about the incident".
