ABHAY SAHOO CHAINED TO A HOSPITAL BED BUT NOT GIVEN A BED

leave a comment »

Abhay Sahoo, the firebrand leader of the anti POSCO farmers’ & fishermen’s
movement in Jagatsinpur district of Orissa was arrested on 12 October. He
had more than twenty falses cases registered against him and he had been
under the villagers protection for more than a year in Dhinkia. On the day
of his arrest he was returning o Dhinkia after a medical checkup. He is
diabetic and asthmatic. He was hospitalised on 3rd December after his blood
sugar levels shot up. But he has not been given a bed and has been illegally
chained to the leg of a bed as if he were a dangerous criminal. Such
treatment is usually meant for dangerous and notorious criminals, not for
those who are fighting for the democratic rights of the poor, oppressed and
marginalised people against the powerful nexus of politicians, corporations,
bureaucrats & mafia.
