Aizawl (mizonews.net): Detained Hmar People Convention (Democratic) ‘commander-in-chief’ Lalropuia, who is currently lodged at the Aizawl Central Jail, has been reportedly hospitalised since November 10 at the Aizawl Civil Hospital.
He complained of high blood pressure while on way to the Aizawl Bench of the Gauhati High Court for his hearing on November 9.
According to sources, Lalropuia who is suffering from diabetes is also a tuberculosis patient. His condition is said to be critical as no proper medical care has been provided to the political prisoner by the Mizoram government. He is reportedly been kept in a general ward at the Aizawl Civil Hospital.
According to doctors at the hospital, they cannot refer the HPC(D) leader to a private hospital unless a directive is issued to them by the Home department of the Mizoram government.
Lalropuia was arrested along with his deputy on June 10, 2012 at Silchar Airport by Mizoram Police while on their way to meet the All Party Leaders Committee (APLC) of Sinlung Hills Development Council (SHDC) to re-initiate peace process after the failed Suspension of Operations (SoO) signed between the Mizoram government and the HPC(D) in 2010.
