Shillong: Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik on Sunday wrote to Union Home Minister Amit Shah seeking justice over the alleged mysterious death of two members of a Garo family in Gurugram, an official said.
While Rosy Sangma had earlier this week died under suspicious circumstances in a private hospital in Gurugram, her nephew Samuel Sangma was found dead in a room a few days later.
Both of them hailed from Dimapur in Nagaland.
“The Governor of Meghalaya has taken cognizance of media reports and outrage over the unnatural deaths of both the individuals of North East and has taken note of the petition addressed to him on the matter,” a Raj Bhavan official said in a statement.
The governor, who is travelling to New Delhi on Sunday, would take up the matter with the authorities concerned for a free, fair, and expeditious investigation into the matter and ensure justice for the deceased, the statement said.
The death of 2 Dimapur residents in Gurugram raises suspicion
In an alleged case of gross medical negligence, a resident of Nagaland‘s Dimapur, Rosy Sangma, recently died at a hospital in Gurugram, reportedly after doctors fed her ice cream while she was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital.
While Rosy Sangma reportedly died at Alfaa Hospital in Sector-10, Gurugram on June 24 after consuming ice cream while she was in the ICU, her nephew, Samuel Sangma, later died by suicide at a hotel in Gurugram where he was staying.
The incident took place at Alphaa Hospital in Guragam, Haryana, where Rosy was reportedly admitted for treatment. Video recordings by her cousin Samuel Sangma encountering the healthcare workers, including a doctor, on the matter were widely circulated on the Internet.
As per reports, the families and friends of the victims also alleged foul play in the death of Samuel and further sought the attention of the state government for a proper inquiry into both deaths.
