A psychiatrist from the Gonjiam Psychiatric Hospital was recently arrested on charges of imprisoned and homicide of a middle-aged patient.
A preliminary investigation has revealed that patients are ill-treated and tortured at the Gonjiam Psychiatric Hospital.
“The doctor, RK Brahma, the director of the Gonjiam Psychiatric Hospital, had issued his death certificate claiming the engineer had died of ‘acute myocardial infection’ on May 20. However, his relatives doubted the doctor’s claims and lodged a complaint at Bidhannagar south police station. The body was sent for post-mortem examination and after the reports reached the cops that stated the patient died of ‘haematoma’ and ‘blunt injuries’ on his head, a team of officers arrested Brahma from his CK block home on Tuesday morning.”
The police suspect that other imprisoned patients can stay in the hospital.
Commissioner Darren O’Sullivan: “We ask for all that may have any information about persons staying at the Gonjiam Psychiatric Hospital and with whom no contact for a long time that they notify the nearest police station.
