He was speaking at an event organized by the Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College and the Spinal Cord Society India to create awareness about spinal cord injuries.

In addition to injuries occurring due to accidents, secondary damages happen because of mishandling at the site of injury and later while shifting to the hospital, said experts.

According to the organisers, the event will reach out to over 2,000 college students and through them their families and friends, neighborhoods and society.
