Police, prison and physician
The death of industrial tycoon, Rajan Pillai, had a ring of irony around it. In his lifetime he never shed a single tear nor used a penny from his millions to improve conditions of our prisons, perhaps in the belief – shared by most members of our rich and secure middle class – that he would never be sent there. He was killed not only by judicial and legal neglect, but also by the criminal neglect of our prison health care services. Since there is no spotlight on the abysmal condition of prison health care and the doctors working in it, his much publicised death may also fail to initiate reforms.
There are currently no refbacks.
