HC directive to Centre

In yet another landmark order, the Gauhati High Court has asked the Centre to clear Rs 10 lakh to Silipi Acharjee whose husband died in army excess.

The court directive came out after Silpi moved high court with the sensational allegation that her husband was killed by the army in their custody.

She further alleged that Biswajeet was tortured in army custody after sustaining external and internal injuries. After his release, though he was admitted to Lumding Railway Hospital, he eventually died on June 2, 2004.

The court further asked Delhi and Dsipur to initiate an enquiry to ascertain the army official involved in the case. 

Biswajit Achajree died on June 2 in 2004 at the Lumding Railway Hospital after he was released from Army custody on June 1, 2004. Army’s 9th Field Regiment of Indian Army on May 31, 2004 took Acharjee in their custody.
