Police responsible for Gopal Das’s disappearance: GDMC Hospital

Ganga activist missing since Wednesday night

The Government Doon Medical College (GDMC) Hospital administration has held the laid-back attitude of the police responsible for the disappearance of the Ganga activist Swami Gopal Das, fasting for the cause of Ganga, from the hospital. The activist fled the hospital despite two policemen guarding him on Wednesday night. The hospital authorities said that he had given the guards a slip when he was at the emergency wing. The medical superintendent GDMC, Dr K K Tamta said on Thursday that Gopal Das had been admitted at the facility on Wednesday. “Given the sensitivity of the matter, the hospital administration informed the local police about his arrival in the hospital. Subsequently, two policemen were deployed by the district administration to keep guard on him. Das was in a stable condition during his brief stay at the hospital. He was, however, having a nasogastric ( NG) tube on his arrival here,” he said. The MS further informed that Das was adamant on no medication being given to him. “The hospital administration has also provided the footage of CCTV cameras to the police,” he added. Notably, Das had started his hunger strike at Matri Sadan after the death of Gyanswaroop Sanand (Professor GD Agarwal) in October this year. The administration had later shifted him to All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) from where he had disappeared. Interestingly, the Ganga activist is being referred from one hospital to another with the hospitals being disinclined to keep him. Das had earlier publicly stated that he too might be killed by the administration in the hospital the way Sanand was killed. Read more posts… Friday, 07 December 2018 | PNS | Dehradun
