Despite visiting the nearby six local police stations where refugees are residing by the team of Chin Refugee Committee (CRC), Chin Human Rights Organization (CHRO), Burmese Woman Delhi (BWD), Ka Chin Refugee Committee (KRC) with support from The Other Media, Naga Peoples Movement for Human Rights and   A Chan, the assault case was continually happen until today.

On 4th May, 2010 at around 9:00 pm a Chin refugee named Mr. Mi Tin Chawn, 37 years old holding UNHCR No. 09C00252 was beaten up by the three local young men around 25 years old at Chanakya Place. Mr. Ni Tin Chawn was working at a local company in Asalatpur, on his way back to home at about 9:00 pm while he was going on the street three local men walking from the front hit him at his shoulder and subsequently start to beat him unconditionally without having any words. He was punched and kicked at the skull and face and he got serious injuries on his face and skull. After a few minutes he fortunately manages to escape from their hands.  He said that he could not fight back and has no intention to fight back them. It was already 10 o’clock at night and there is no one to help him approach the hospital or clinic. He then directed to his residence at Sitapuri and after arriving there they purchase medicines from the nearby medicine shop and took it.

Mr. Ni Tin Lian and family (Wife and minor son) came to New Delhi in 2008 and were newly recognized refugees under the mandate of UNHCR. They are currently residing in RZ-G-82, Asalatpur. The family survives hardly with the monthly wage of Mr. Ni Tin Lian amounting Rs. 2,000 per month and there are in severe poverty. They are not yet receiving subsistence allowance from the UNHCR.

The safety and security of the refugees in New Delhi become more vulnerable recently, despite of the above team are trying their best to reduce the problems. If the efforts and activities of the team could not help reduce the problems faced by the refugees, we don’t know what step should be taken. Therefore, on behalf of the Chin refugees here in New Delhi, I would like to ask the help of the concerned authority like UNHCR, Government of India (GOI), NGO’s from India, the International communities and individuals.

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.
