For the last 10 days, he was on a ventilator. Yesterday morning, Dr Ali died at the AIIMS trauma centre. He is survived by his wife and two children – a six-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter.
“I am proud of my husband. He kept working till the end and he is a martyr. He did not take even one day off since March. He worked even on Eid,” Dr Heena Kausar, his wife told NDTV.
The cost for the initial treatment at the private hospital was also borne by the family. “No treatment cost was covered when he was at a private hospital initially. We spent around Rs 6 lakh from our own pockets,” she said.
“How will I survive as a single mother? It is my humble request to the government that they should provide compensation and my husband’s job should now be given to me,” Dr Heena Kausar added.
