In a very beautiful humanitarian gesture two men, a Hindu and a Muslim, saved the lives of each other’s wives by donating a kidney each.
The kidneys of both Anita Mehra, from Hasanpur, and Tasleem Jahan, from Ajmere Gate, had failed. Doctors discovered that Anita’s blood group was B positive and Tasleem’s was A positive.
