NO ONE CAME TO THEIR RESCUE – Father murders disabled son, hangs himself in Dooars

Baroghoria Gram, which falls under Kranti police station in the Malbazar sub-division of Alipurduar District where the incident took place, is like every other typical village in Dooars, North Bengal. It is predominantly an Adivasi village, and there is not much to write about in terms of infrastructure. Suffice it to say, infrastructure in the form of basic health care is nonexistent. Abhiraj Oroan - a tribal child was born in this faraway village with imperforate anus - a rare birth disorder where the child has an improperly developed anus, and therefore can't pass stool normally from their rectum out of their body. He would release stool through a small hole in his navel.
His father Pandit Oroan (35) was desperate, with a very limited income. He was desperate to have his son operated on, a date for which was set towards the end of December this year. This operation, known as anoplasty, could have opened up Abhiraj’s rectum and the child would have been able to have a normal stool procedure. Sadly the operation cost money, which Pandit Oroan didn’t have.
Unable to collect funds needed to pay for the operation, Pandit took the most unfortunate decision.
His wife, who is still in grief stated, “around 7 PM on the 2nd of December he took the child out... I didn’t think much, only later we found that he had drowned the baby in the well behind the house and had hung himself by the tree."

TRAGIC : An old man run over by a truck at Jhankar More dies at Siliguri Hospital due to alleged negligence

An old man was run over by a truck at Siliguri Jhankar More while he was crossing the road this noon around 12.30pm. His legs had got badly crushed.
Our followers Naseem and Sahil who were at the spot rushed him to Siliguri District Hospital at Court More in a Toto but none attended him. It's alleged that the people there said there is a spot boy who takes the patient inside emergency and was attending to someone.
Anyhow the duo took him to the emergency by themselves. As his treatment was underway he expired. Already 30 minutes had passed in the premises which were very crucial. His family has been contacted.
We salute Naseem and Sahil for showing immense HUMANITY. The duo are still with the deceased family at Medical where post mortem is going on. May God bless them and hope administration looks into the alleged carelessness of the hospital.
