People from all walks of life extended helping hand to the family of a 27-year-old sanitation worker who died after allegedly falling in the sewer of a building which he was going to clean in Dwarka's Dabri.

Anil slipped while climbing down and the rope around his waist broke, following which he fell in the 20-feet deep sewer. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him brought dead.

Over Rs, 18 lakh has already been received by the crowdfunding platform Ketto, after an initiative by NGO Uday Foundation, whose founder Rahul Verma had shared a photo of Anil's body with a child.

As the news was widely shared on social media, several people extended help to the family of the deceased as he was the only earning member of the family.

Ketto had set a target of Rs 24 lakh and within few hours after the news was shared on various social media platforms, over Rs 10 lakh was already collected with over 100 people donating their bit to help the family.
