Imphal, May 21:
Asian Games gold medalist boxer Dingko Singh has started a journey of 2,400-km to reach his home in Imphal from Delhi. As per reports, he is set to complete the journey in 48 hours without taking any overnight stops. He is accompanied by his wife, a nurse and two drivers who would be travelling with him till Manipur. Singh was in Delhi for his cancer treatment and was also suffering from jaundice. According to reports, he was flown to Delhi with efforts from Boxing Federation of India for his radiotherapy appointment at Delhi’s Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS).
Soon after Singh was examined by the doctors, he was suggested chemotherapy instead but couldn’t be administered as he was already suffering from jaundice at the time. All this while, Dingko Singh was under quarantined at ILBS. Dingko contracted jaundice in January as was admitted at ILBS in Delhi where he was suspected of having a strong relapse of a form of live cancer. Since he had already undergone a whole cycle of chemotherapy in 2017, radiation was suggested for him but due to his low blood count, it had to be put off. In an attempt to improve his blood count, he went home in early March after spending six weeks at the ILBS, before returning for treatment only to face a delay again and more problems due to the pan-India lockdown in force.
