Once again on Friday a patient lost his life, due to road blockade at Papu Nallah near by Naharlagun due to some group of miscreants in the battle of political supremacy in the state. A patient lost his life, with no chance to say his final good bye to his loved ones.
One Karka Bahadur Chetry, a 60 years old man who lost his life at Papu Nallah had been sick and was on his way back to his native place at Kimin from Rama Krishna Mission Hospital, Itanagar when the blockade proved fatal for him.
They were made to wait for more than two hours and were not allowed to pass through even after several plead. “We had to wait for more than two hours. We requested them to let us pass but was not allowed,” informed his son who carried the body of his lifeless father, a man denied a dignity in death. Few of his relatives later had to carry his lifeless body, bundle in a blanket across the blockade as hundreds of people watched.
