PUCL Bulletin, May 2002
An Appeal from
We had published in
May 2000 'An urgent appeal
from a mother' from West Bengal. Partha Majumdar, S/o Ms. Sunila Majumdar
was picked up by the police early in the morning of September 5,1997.
After a few hours he is known to have been removed to Habrah hospital
from Akrampur in 24 Parganas. After that he was untraceable since September
7, 1997. The 72-year-old mother has been running from pillar to post.
We again published this case in details in August 2000. Partha Majumdar
is still untraced. We have again received a letter from his mother, which
we are publishing below -- General Secretary:
My son has disappeared.
It is a shame that
he has disappeared from police custody.
My son's father, who
had died long back, was a Freedom Fighter. He did not fight for freedom,
I am sure, to see his son disappear from police custody.
Publishing this letter
or news in Monthly Bulletin of PUCL may help me to get back my son. Or,
to perform his funeral rites! I appeal to you to kindly request all your
members, readers of PUCL monthly Bulletin and other fraternal Human Rights
Organisations and HR activists to write to the Chief Minister of West
so that he initiates early and appropriate action.
With great expectations
