IMPHAL, December 4: In protest against the prolonged silence of RIMS in connection with the death of Devjani Devi and the unkept assurances for departmental inquiry, all roads leading to FCS godown including Tera Lukram Leirak will be indefinitely blocked with effect from December 9, 2013.
In this regard, the JAC formed in connection with the death of Keithellakpam (o) Devjani Devi has today conveyed in a press release that the dead body was cremated on November 23 following the order of the inquiry committee to inquire into the death which was notified by medical superintendent of RIMS, Prof Ch Arunkumar Singh on November 22 last.
Now, the shardha of the late Devjani was held today, although there has been no communication from the side of RIMS which shows the delaying tactics of the RIMS authority assuming that the memory of the JAC and family members would fade away soon, it said.
The press release further conveyed that Devjani died because she belonged to a poor family.
Her family failed to take her to a private hospital, where despite of the high medical bills, there is seldom any negligence on the part of the hospital authorities, it claimed.
It is further said that such act of negligence on part of the hospital staff and doctors is nothing but amounting to encouraging private clinics and hospitals.
The JAC further expressed through the press release that the non practising allowance enjoying doctors are working in the private hospitals and clinics to earn extra money by neglecting their valued patients at RIMS.
