Negligence and chaos surrounds death in Rangiatila, Police failures lead to missing Post-Mortem


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, 18th February 2024:  In a disturbing turn of events, the police’s alleged negligence in the Mungiakami police station has resulted in the completion of last rites without conducting a post-mortem for a 65-year-old man in Rangiatila.

The incident unfolded at Teliamura sub-division hospital, causing chaos and raising questions about the role of both the police and the attending doctor.

The family of the deceased, identified as Rabira Debbarma, brought his body to the hospital around 4 pm on Saturday. Despite the doctor on duty pronouncing him dead, the police from Mungiakami police station were reportedly missing from the scene between 4 pm and 9:30 pm. Outraged by the absence of law enforcement, the family rushed to the Teliamura Sub-Divisional Hospital.

The situation escalated when police from Mungiakami and TSR arrived, and with no one available to handle the deceased in the hospital, the post-mortem did not take place as per the family’s wishes. In a shocking turn of events, the body was taken down from the hospital’s emergency room by an auto-rickshaw in front of the police.

The villagers, angered by the police’s role, attacked law enforcement when they attempted to intervene. Sunil Debbarma, the Mungiakami block chairman, confirmed the incident over a phone call with a journalist, highlighting the villagers’ frustration with the prolonged absence of police.

Amidst the chaos, questions have surfaced regarding the role of Dr. Debashish Das, the doctor on duty at Teliamura sub-district hospital, who released the body without conducting a post-mortem. Furthermore, uncertainty surrounds the circumstances of the old man’s death, raising suspicions of a potential suicide by hanging or other underlying mysteries.

Despite the turmoil, the last rites were completed without a post-mortem examination on Sunday morning, leaving the community in shock and demanding accountability for the apparent lapses in protocol by both the police and the hospital staff. Investigations are expected to be launched to address the discrepancies and ascertain the cause of Rabira Debbarma’s death.
