HC Deb 10 August 1904 vol 140 cc12-3
MR. SCHWANN (Manchester, N.)

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been drawn to the case of the Bara Thakar, of Hill Tipperah, who was expelled from Agartola last month with his family immediately after having instituted a suit in a British Court of law for the declaration of his rights in respect of the Zemindary Chukla Roshnabad and other properties; and, if so, will he explain why this expulsion has been permitted, seeing that the suit of the Bara Thakar is prejudiced by his enforced absence, and that his efforts to obtain evidence may be rendered difficult by its appearing that the Government of India is against him. † See (4) Debates, cxxxviii, 1464 (Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) I have received no information as to the alleged expulsion of the Bara Thakar, of Hill Tipperah, from Agartola. I will communicate with the Government of India on the subject.
