Vikram told the daily, “We are very poor. Jeet was the only earning member of the family. This help has come at a time when the family needed it the most. We don’t have a house. After Jeet’s death, the family is back to penury.”

Central Reserve Police Force DIG Jagdish Narayan Meena confirmed that the actor has donated the money to Sundari Devi in Bharatpur. Gurjar is survived by his wife and two minor daughters. The jawan’s parents, Radhey Shyam and Gopa Devi, both in their 80s were also dependent on him.
