Landhoni Critical

IMPHAL, Apr 1: With the condition of Moirangthem Landhoni Devi, who has undertaken a fast unto death strike inside the Gauhati Central Jail since March 8 in protest against detention over alleged trumped up charges by NIA, deteriorating day by day, staff of the hospital in the jail had to put in extra efforts and work as locating her veins had become a tough task.

According to information received from inside the jail, Landhoni has completed 25 days of fasting today.

She was sent back to the Gauhati Central Jail from Guwahati Medical College on March 25 after the doctors declared that her physical condition has started showing signs of improvement. Her condition has, however, deteriorated again. Accordingly, the staff of the hospital in the jail today made a frantic effort in trying to inject saline solution as her veins could not be located that easily.

It may be recalled here that Landhoni Devi was arrested while going to meet her husband Kh Jiten, an alleged cadre of the outlawed UNLF taking shelter in Guwahati. Regardless of an earlier bail granted by the Court, Landhoni Devi has been booked by NIA charging her to be a member of the proscribed outfit.

Various social organizations have condemned the detention of Landhoni and questioned the silence of the State Government over the issue.
