Woman abandoned at hospital by son rescued

By The Assam Tribune

ITANAGAR, Aug 4 - A 75-year-old woman, who was abandoned by her son at a hospital near here last month, was reunited with her family by the joint efforts of police, State Legal Services Authority and other social organisations.

Brajeswari Burman, who was suffering from diarrhoea, was taken to Tomo Riba State Hospital (TRSH) at Naharlagun on July 25 by her son and daughter-in-law.

They left the hospital allegedly when the doctor asked them to bring some medicines, and did not return, a release by Arunachal Pradesh State Legal Services Authority (APSLSA) said today.

After members of APSLSA, Arunachal Vivekananda Yuva Shakti, a social organisation, and Woman Helpline searched for her kin for six days, and used social media for the purpose, they got the whereabouts of her son and daughter-in-law from a person, it said.

On questioning by police it was revealed that the woman was staying with her eldest daughter-in-law at Naharlagun. When her health condition worsened, they had dumped her at the doorsteps of her younger son, who abandoned her at the hospital, the release said.

APSLSA and the police took an undertaking from her sons and daughters-in-law that they would take care of the woman. Besides, the APSLSA will give Rs 2,000 per month to her, the release said. However, disheartened by the ill-treatment meted out by her sons and daughters-in-law, the woman has reportedly decided to leave for her hometown of Coochbehar in West Bengal. � PTI
