Psychiatric Prisons

A psychiatric hospital in Assam, India has admitted that people are being held for no reason.

Machang Lalung has been held for 54 years. He was 23 years old when he was confined... no one is really sure why anymore. He is now 77 years old and has been working without pay in the garden.

Amongst other patients, Khalilur Rehman has spent 35 years there. Anil Kumar Burman has spent 33 years there. Sonamani Deb 32 years, and Parbati Mallik has been there for 32 years.

No documentation or reason for the internment was able to be provided. They remain imprisoned whilst an “investigation” takes place.
