“The arrival of Dr KC and other medical officers has offered a great relief to the villagers who are unable to receive adequate medical support and treatment at the local health facilities,” Jha said. Besides Tilathi locals, people from nearby villages thronged the health camp from early morning for medical check-ups and treatment.
