He said that the late doctor put the interest of others ahead of his own, providing an “outstanding example of Christian service” and helped others through charitable initiatives. 

“In his demise, the people had lost a valuable citizen who still had so much to contribute with his wisdom and vast experience,” he said. 

Further, Metha conveyed condolences to the bereaved family members and prayed for the soul to rest in peace.
