Karimul Haque aka ‘Bike Ambulance Dada’. Karimul Haque, a resident of Jalpaiguri in West Bengal, is no less than a messiah. He has helped hundreds of people living in the districts around him for the last decade.

He says that his mother suffered a heart attack. He tried a lot, but no resources were found. The treatment was not received on time and the mother died. After this, he vowed that he would not let anyone else die like this.
He joined the healthcare after this. Initially, he used to help people with whatever he found in the rickshaw-jamming. In the meantime, one of his companions fell on his patrol and took someone’s bike and brought it to the hospital. Just here, he got the idea of bike ambulance.
