    Humanistic Approach

    Dulal Chandra Paul – the 65-year-old man who was declared a foreigner in 2017 died Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) on October 13th, 2019. Even after 48 hours, the family members have refused to accept the body to perform the last rites.

    The son of the deceased said that he will take his father’s body home only when he is declared an Indian. Paul was declared a Bangladeshi by a Foreigners’ Tribunal in 2017 and lodged at the Tezpur Jail-cum Detention Centre. In the last leg of September, he was admitted in GMCH as he was suffering from multiple ailments.

    The family members also claimed that Paul was mentally unstable. They said the Foreigners’ Tribunal refused to accept his land documents from 1965. The All Assam Bengali Youth Students’ Federation along with other bodies has staged protest which forced the Sonitpur district officials to visit the deceased’s house.  

     And many be for the first time, the Assam government has ordered a magisterial probe into the death of an inmate of a foreigners’ detention centre. The family members claimed that Paul didn’t receive proper treatment prior to his death.

    The government must probe alleged negligence on the part of the authorities that led to the death of the inmate. Paul’s paper submitted at the tribunal should also be rechecked.

    Assam is on the brink of a crisis, Amnesty mentioned in a statement earlier. The lodged inmates at the detention camps are not convicted criminals. A sympathetic humanistic approach is expected from the State government at this hour. It is the duty of the government to ensure the rights of a person, even after death.
