Now, a beggar from Uttar Pradesh is in the news after he met with an accident. What unfolded after the accident shocked many people. The beggar’s secret would not have been revealed had he not met with an accident yesterday.
According to reports, 62-year-old beggar Sharif Baunk is a resident of Samdar Khurd of Pipraich police station. He is a deaf and mute person. Since he has no family, he lived with his nephew Inayat Ali. Sharif begs daily at the taxi stand in Bhatahat town. He also takes a commission from private vehicles in lieu of passengers. It’s his daily routine. However, unfortunately, he met with an accident yesterday when he was hit by a bike whose rider was a student of Class 11.
