Sangrur: 97-year-old Gurdial Singh had worked as driver for Subhas Chandra Bose and was also jailed for taking part in the Indian freedom struggle. He had also received President's award 20 days ago on the occasion of Independence Day celebrations. Despite being a freedom fighter, he had to struggle a lot and fight a court case before getting the pension reserved for freedom fighters. His family expressed disappointment that none of the officers or people's representatives came to visit him despite the fact that he was ill for quite some time now. His last rites were performed with state honour.
