Former Asian Games gold medallist Dingko Singh is seeking help from the union sports ministry as he is unable to travel to New Delhi for radiation.
Singh is battling a relapse of liver cancer and he is confined to his house in Manipur as there is a ban on air travel due to the lockdown.
“The doctors asked me to undergo radiation, which can only be done in Delhi. But due to the lockdown until May 3, I am unable to travel,” Singh said.
He further informed that the doctors have asked him to undergo chemotherapy first in Manipur and then the radiation would be planned accordingly.
“However, doctors in Manipur said they can’t give me chemotherapy as my bilirubin levels are high,” Singh further said.
“I am ready to travel by road in an ambulance. But the doctors have advised me against it as this may hamper my heal condition further,” said the Asian Games gold medallist.
He said he is unsure if the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) is aware of his situation or not.
“I do not know if they are aware of my present situation or not, but in the past, they have helped me,” Singh added.
