Sutapa Sikdar, wife of the late actor Irrfan Khan, has expressed grief over the demise of her relative Sameer Banerjee from Covid-19. Also expressing disappointment that Sameer could not get an oxygen bed in a Delhi hospital. She says that if Sameer had not been an honest person, Chota Rajan (gangster) would have made it easier for him to have beds in the hospital.
Sutapa wrote on social media, "I posted a day before for help for my relative Sameer Banerjee. Today he left us. we couldn’t set up an ICU at home in Delhi the capital of India and we couldn’t get a bed in the hospital. My gratitude to all the covid warriors who helped. I will never forget. you all my blessings to you all till I live. I will never forget Sameerda’s smile..I will cherish my adolescent memories with him. I will never forget that I couldn’t get a bed in ICU for him because he was not Chota Rajan. He was an honest man. I will not forget this mayhem in Delhi. You don’t forget too that Banerjee sheikhs das adjanias all have to go and they could have stayed with us all a bit longer if we would have concentrated as a country more on hospital oxygen plants than Hindu festivals and Muslim festivals. #delhigovt #modi #bettertobechotarajan #don’tforget”.
Sutapa also mentioned the Delhi government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Better to be a Chota Rajan in hashtags with his post. Sutapa and her son Babil these days are constantly engaged in helping people struggling with Covid.
