Agra: In a heartbreaking story from Agra, a man wrote to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking euthanasia for all his 6 children aged between 8 to 18 years.

Children have been diagnosed with a rare debilitating neurological disorder and it has almost paralysed their lower bodies and affected their voice and vision. The disease is curable but the man cannot afford the treatment.
