Later his body was taken to his original home at Morigaon. At the time of his death Justice Roy left behind his wife and two children.
There is no sufficient doctor and staff at 200 bedded Sivasagar Civil Hospital. The hospital, situated at Joysagar, is the main hospital of the District and hundreds of people come daily for treatment. There is only one radiologist in the hospital and it is impossible for him to provide 24-hours service. So, patients have to go to private laboratories. Shortage of doctors, nurses and other staff is another big problem here.
Peoples of the district have been demanding appointment of required numbers of doctors, nurses and other staff immediately.
