Sources in Rashid Hospital said, "Hanuman went through two major surgeries after he was brought to the hospital with multiple fractures. He cannot work for next three months."

Hanuman was knocked down by a truck in the Al Quoz area. "A truck hit me while I was resting under the shade near my work place. I don't know who took me to hospital," he said.

Like hundreds of others, Hanuman, too, had landed in Dubai after being lured by unscrupulous agents.

"I was a farmer. An agent told me that I could make good money if I went to Dubai. He charged me Dh5000 for visa. But when I came here the company did not pay me for three months. I ran away from the company and worked as an illegal," Hanuman recalled.

"I had borrowed money from money lenders to pay to the agent," he said, adding, "I could not send money home and the money lenders are harassing my family back home."

"We have applied for an exit pass for Hanuman. We now need to organise money for sending him home. He can travel only on a wheelchair," said Valley of Love volunteer C.P. Mathew.
