Tea stall owner stable, but critical

SHILLONG: Doctors at the Nemcare Hospital in Guwahati are still uncertain about the chances of survival of arson victim from the city, Bisheshwar Das, who was shifted from Woodland Hospital on Sunday.

Das, the owner of Babua Tea Stall at Bishnupur, was set ablaze inside his shop on Saturday last.

Speaking to The Shillong Times on Monday, CMD of Nemcare Hospital Dr Hitesh Baruah said that Das was not out of danger as yet and chances of his survival can only be ascertained after “two-three dressings.” Barua confirmed that Das has 45 per cent burn injuries, which is considered severe for any burn victim.

The hospital authorities, Barua said, are doing their best to save Das’s life.

Das was the second victim of ILP related violence in the city. Earlier, a city-based businessman Bikash Nandwani succumbed to his injuries when he too was set ablaze inside his shop at Motphran.

It may be mentioned that the State Government is bearing the treatment expenses of the tea stall owner.
