GOLAKGANJ, Aug 5 � At a time when the State and Union Governments are making tall claims of providing all necessary medical help to the riot victims who are taking shelter in different relief camps across Dhubri district, the people staying in these camps are still crying for primary medical helps.
It is a matter of grave concern that within the last few days, at least six persons died while many others fell sick due to absence of proper medical facilities in the relief camps.
According to information, Rofijuddin Miya (32) who was taking shelter in Belpara LP School and Kamala Bewa (72) who was in Kamandanga Higher Secondary Madrassa School under Tamarhat Police Station and a newborn baby of Samiya Bibi who is taking shelter in Suparighat Tilapara ME Madrassa School, died due to lack of primary medical service in these relief camps.
State Health Minister, Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma visited the said relief camps on July 29 and also took stock of the medical facilities provided to different relief camps.
NA Laskar, ADC, Dhubri said that Dhubri district administration has given full attention and care to all the relief camps in the district. He further added that six persons died in the camps.
On the other hand, an unclaimed packet caused a flutter in a refugee camp here before a bomb disposal squad found it to be a harmless object on Saturday, police said. The packet, containing a lump of plastic, cloth and nails tied up with ropes, was detected in the store room of the camp set up at Dalsingrel Alga LP School by some of its inmates yesterday morning. The inmates doubted it to be an IED and informed police. Senior police and district administration officals rushed to the spot and opened it. Police suspected that some miscreants had placed the packet to create tension among the people. Over a thousand people are currently taking shelter in the camp.
