Assault Case in Delhi – 23 April

Posted by crcnewdelhi on April 23, 2010

The assault cases had been happened repeatedly in the past few weeks. On 23rd April, 2010 at about 6:00 pm more assault case had been happened in Chanakya Place, Uttam Nagar.

The incident started that when a Burmese (Chin) refugee named Mr.Fung Ling, 37 years old holding UNHCR No.08IND01388 and his wife visited their relative who was sick at home. On their way back to home at about 6:30 pm the two men biker came from behind and talk to Mr. Fung Ling. Mr. Fung Ling replied that he does not understand Hindi. While they were talking a fellow Burmese (Chin) refugees called Mr. Than Sang (08IND01410) come and asked the two bikers what they need because of knowing that his friend Mr. Fung Ling did not speak Hindi. By just asking what they need, one of the biker sitting on the back seat slapped Mr. Than Sang on his face and got down from the bike and started to attack them. The bikers were above six foot told and the Burmese refugees did not fight them back. They were severely beaten up and so many bloods had been shed. Mr. Fung Ling was hit by the brick at the lower back part of the skull and collapsed unconsciously. When more people were gathered and some refugees also saw the incident one of a refugee named Mr. Van Lal Lian (08C00279) come and asked them to stop but they rather attacked him also and fled from there and called the CRC president by phone. When the culprits saw that Mr. Van Lal Lian was calling some one they approached him and taken away his mobile phone and beaten him.

When the victims knew that the two men were not going to stop fighting them, they fled to the nearby refugee house and unlock the door from behind. But the attackers still climbed to their door and shouted at them. At last when they were unable to open the door they went away from the place. Mr. Van Lal Lian identified their vehicle number as HR99DZTP 3265. After one hour, accompanying with the CRC president the victims went to DDU hospital got treatment. While the incident was taken place so many people gathered and watched them but unfortunately no one was reaching up to help them. By just not knowing Hindi three victims were left and the culprits freed with unharmed.

Mr. Fung Ling and family arrive New Delhi in 1998 and were recognized refugees. The family members include his wife and five minor children below 12 years old. They received no more financial assistance from the UNHCR and working as the local factory and earning Rs. 2,000 per month. Mr. Than Sang and his wife also arrive New Delhi in 1998 and were also got recognition of refugee. His income amounting Rs. 1,500 is the only source of their survival. Mr. Van Lal Lian, a widower having a minor daughter came to New Delhi in 1998 and also got refugee certificate. The subsistence allowance provided by the UNHCR had been terminated and no income for their survival. Now, they were staying with Mr. Ro Mawi, the CRC president house and were feed by him. These three families need special attention for their safety, security and survival and lived with severe poverty. Therefore I ask the UNHCR to do whatever possible assistance for these families.

In the past few days four assault cases had been happened in this locality but no proper or effective action had been taken by the police or other authorities. Recently the situation become more vulnerable and we need some kind of help from the concerned authorities, NGO’s and individuals.
