    Inmate of Goalpara Detention Centre Dies At GMCH, Family Refuses To Receive Body

    Phalu Das (70) was staying at the Goalpara detention centre since July 2017

    Within less than two weeks of the death of Dulal Chandra Paul, an inmate of the Tezpur Detention Centre, another ‘foreigner’ died at the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital on October 24th, 2019. He was admitted at the hospital for medical assistance on October 13th, 2019.

    The 70-year-old deceased, who has been identified as Phalu Das, was staying at the Goalpara detention camp since July 2017. Das hailed from Sotemari under Mukalmua Police Station in Barkhetri in Assam’s Nalbari district.

    Speaking to the media person, one of the family members said, “He was declared a foreigner in 2017 despite providing supporting documents to prove his citizenship and sent to Goalpara detention centre. Thereafter, we have been continuously fighting in court. Unfortunately, after a prolonged illness, he died at the GMCH yesterday.”

    Das was first admitted to the Goalpara Civil Hospital on October 11th, 2019 from where he was shifted to the GMCH on October 13th, 2019 for better medical assistance.

    The family members of the deceased alleged that they were not informed about his illness. Expressing his strong resentment at the government for “harassing” the family by declaring Das a foreigner, one of his three sons said, “We won’t accept his body since he was declared a Bangladeshi. Let the government send his body to Bangladesh.”

    It may be mentioned that on October 13th, 2019, ‘mentally unstable’ Paul died at the GMCH where he was admitted for medical assistance due to his deteriorating health. Later, the family members of Paul refused to take his body until the government declares him as an Indian.
