Health condition of Akhil Gogoi stable


GUWAHATI, March 8 - The health condition of KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi is now stable and has been improving steadily. But he still remains very weak, said KMSS joint secretary Mukut Deka today.

Gogoi is currently lodged in Guwahati Central Jail after he was arrested in December during the mass movement against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. Recently, he complained of severe back pain and fever.

�He could not even meet his visitors in jail for two days as he was not in a condition to get up from bed. Later in GMCH the doctors detected a kidney stone and he was also diagnosed with severe gastric problem,� Deka told The Assam Tribune.

The KMSS moved the NIA Special Court here a few days back with a petition seeking medical treatment for Gogoi.

Acting on the petition, the court asked the jail authority to arrange necessary medical treatment for him and to provide copies of all medical reports to his family.

Deka said the jail authority would provide the copies of medical reports to Gogoi�s family by Monday. �We will consult specialist doctors about the treatment of Akhil Gogoi after receiving the medical reports,� he said.

Recently, two human rights activists � Babloo Loitongbam and Henri Tiphagne � moved the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on the deteriorating health condition of Gogoi and sought immediate intervention.

In the petition, the duo urged the NHRC to arrange medical test of Gogoi through a team of doctors from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi.

Deka also informed that the International Federation for Human Rights and the World Organisation Against Torture moved the United Nations over the health issues of Gogoi.
