In a heart-warming gesture, about three dozen CRPF personnel have donated blood to supplement the bank at the GTB Hospital in New Delhi and help those who were injured in the Delhi communal clashes.

The hospital authorities said that a contingent of 50 personnel of the paramilitary was sent to the hospital on Tuesday and about 34 of them donated blood.

Nearly 40 people have lost their lives in the violence and more than 200 have been injured in the riots that began on Monday.

Over 1,300 personnel from CRPF, BSF, CISF and ITBP donated blood at a mega blood donation drive organised by the AIIMS on Thursday.
