Release of the terminally ill 75 yrs old Sushil Roy

Mr. Sushil Roy, son of Late Sukhendu Bhushan Roy, resident of c/o Dr. Shyamal C. Roy, North Dhalua, Garia, P.S. Sonarpur, Kolkata – 700152, West Bengal, at present lodged in prison; Giridih Mandal Kara, District Giridih, Jharkhand is an ailing senior citizen of India aged 75 years 8 months, he has entered his eighth year of incarceration ever since his arrest in the last week of May, 2005. He is both old and extremely weak; virtually in a crippled condition due to several ailments as of now. It was during this period of incarceration that he experienced a sharp deterioration in his health and overall physical condition. He lost vision in his left eye following a cataract operation, and the other eye was also damaged owing to recurring internal hemorrhage caused by high blood pressure. He has thus been pushed to the edge of the abyss of total blindness during his years in prison. A fall that he had in the toilet of Chaibasa Mandal Kara, where he was lodged earlier, had led to a fracture in the hip joint, after which a steel rod was inserted in place of the broken bone, due to which he still has difficulty in movement, as also in lying down or sitting on the floor or even standing for a while. He can walk around only with the aid of a tripod stick, and cannot attend to nature’s call unless a commode is arranged. He also suffers from an enlargement of the prostrate and from piles, which, due to the usual lack of regular care and attendance characteristic of prisons, often causes the passage of blood along with urine, and swelling and intense pain in the rectal region while passing stools. Apart from these ailments and from high blood pressure, he also suffers from diabetes, cervical spondylitis, and a form of heart disease related to ischemia, accompanied with hypertension. He had been transferred to Rajendra Institute of Medical Science during the last week of August 2012 from Giridih Mandal Kara (Prison), after that on 12th of September he again referred to All India Medical Science; New Delhi, currently where he is getting his treatment.
