Accident (Hit and run) case

Posted by crcnewdelhi on May 20, 2010

Almost every day serious cases such as assaults, sexual violence and robs, etc are continuously happened to the Burmese (Chin) refugees and asylum seekers. It showed that the security situations of Burmese refugees are more vulnerable and the recent activity of visiting several police stations seems unhelpful.

On 19th May, 2010, a Chin asylum seeker Mrs. Tluang nei Thang (10C00907) having wife and one minor child working at a small leather industry at Sargarpur, New Harinagar was badly hit by a scooter on his way back to home at about 8 pm. He was unconsciously felt down on the ground for one hour and he got injuries on his head, back and severe pain on the whole body. His cycle was totally damaged. When he became conscious many local people gathered and surrounded him but unfortunately those people did not stop the assailant.  The scooter registration number was identified by one of the local men as DL-4S-471.  As soon as we got the news we reported the incident to the Socio and Legal Information Center (SLIC) one of the UNHCR implementing partners, requesting them to take the necessary action.

This family came to New Delhi on 7th April, 2010 to seek protection from the UNHCR and they are waiting for the refugee status determination interview to be held on 9th July, 2010. Mrs. Tluang Nei Thang has start working in that small industry only since the past one week and now the family got serious problem and they did not even have the cost of medication and they are in very difficult situation.

In the recent many cases almost all cases were reported to the concerned police stations by submitting complaint or lodging First Information Report (FIR) but not even a single legal action was taken until today. We need and ask more help and support of the concerned authorities, NGO’s and international organizations or communities.
