Assam: Assaulted doctor’s family turns down Ajmal’s 1L aid | Guwahati News


GUWAHATI: Family members of doctor Seuj Kumar Senapati, who was brutally assaulted at a Covid care centre in Assam’s Hojai district, have refused to accept the financial support of Rs 1 lakh extended by All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief Badruddin Ajmal following the incident.
Seuj and few other staff of the centre were assaulted by a mob following the demise of a Covid-19 positive patient at Udali Covid Care Centre in the district on June 1. The family members of the patient were also in the mob. Later, police arrested 26 people in connection with the incident. The case is now being personally monitored by chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
Seuj is currently undergoing treatment at the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH). Hospital authorities on Thursday said though Seuj got a bone fracture on his face, he is stable and out of danger.
Jahnabi Senapati, sister of the doctor, told TOI, “We have watched in television that Badruddin Ajmal has announced Rs 1 lakh as a financial help to us. We welcome his announcement. But we cannot accept that amount as the government is bearing the treatment cost. So, there is no reason to accept Ajmal’s help.”
“If he wants to help us, then help Seuj to get justice. He must make sure all the perpetrators get punished,” he said.
Jitu Bordoloi, the brother-in-law of Seuj who came to Guwahati with the assaulted doctor for his treatment, said, “Seuj is currently undergoing treatment at the GMCH. He is recovering well.”
Talking about Ajmal’s help, he said, “We do not want to accept the financial help not for any other reason. We do not want money. Already, he is getting free treatment provided by the state government. He can help us in getting justice.”
Ajmal has vehemently condemned the barbaric incident and urged the state government to make the arrangement for a fast trial so that the culprits get immediate and exemplary punishment.
It may be mentioned that it was not the first incident of such kind in the state. Doctors and health workers have become victims of such assault or lynching in the state for several times. In 2019, a 73-year-old resident doctor — Deben Dutta of Teok Tea Estate in Assam’s Jorhat district — was lynched. The mob alleged medical negligence by the doctor resulting in death of a plantation worker.
Last year in October, a local court pronounced 25 people guilty in the case. Of them, 1 was awarded death penalty and 24 were awarded life imprisonment.
