It is perhaps the worst nightmare for a living man. Mr. Ghanshyam Rangnekar a billionaire (he was living in a house, he owns another big flat and the sales proceeds of a 3rd flat is lying in his account) is in a coma with nobody to look after him. He is in coma, has nobody from his family (he is a bachelor whose siblings have died). He lies unconscious in Rajawadi hospital.
Nobody can access his bank account – you need a bank account number for that apart from his signature. He of course cannot sign.
