Selina Begum, who ferries coronavirus patients in North Dinajpur district of north Bengal, received a cheque of Rs 50,000 from Raiganj MLA Krishna Kalyani last week. This is the second cheque that she received from the newly-elected MLA.

When pandemic struck in March 2020 and many of the ambulance drivers hesitated helping Covid-19 patients fearing infection, Selina rose to the occasion and dedicated her ambulance for coronavirus infected patients.
