The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Sunday issued a notice to the Maharashtra government in the wake of a complaint alleging the serious health condition of imprisoned 84-year- Maoist Father Stan Swamy. In the notice sent through the state’s chief secretary, the NHRC has called upon him to ensure that every possible effort is made in providing Swamy proper care and treatment as part of life-saving measures and protection of his basic human rights.

The commission has called for a report in the light of the allegations made in the complaint, and the treatment record of the leftist extremist, who is very and lodged in Taloja Jail, Navi Mumbai. “The NHRC, looking into the complaint, alleging serious health condition of imprisoned Fr Stan Swamy (84 years), has today issued a notice to the chief secretary, government of Maharashtra, calling upon him to ensure that every possible effort is made in providing him proper care and treatment as part of life-saving measure and protection of his basic human rights,” the NHRC said in a statement.

The radical communist activist has been arrested in the case.

This direction has come in continuation with the earlier order of the commission, wherein it had advised the government to provide adequate care and treatment to Swamy, who is admitted at the Holy Family Hospital, and submit a report within four weeks, it said.

Earlier, the NHRC had received a complaint on 16 May that Swamy was being denied facility during the Covid-19 period, the rights panel said.

It was also alleged in the complaint that he had not been vaccinated yet and that there was no proper care in the jail hospital, it said.

The petitioner has further alleged that the majority of jail staff had tested Covid positive, especially most of the kitchen staff.

A number of undertrial prisoners had also contracted the coronavirus and no RT-PCR tests were conducted there, as per the complaint, the statement said.
