HC Deb 02 July 1907 vol 177 cc524-5

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if ho will state the names of all those recently arrested and deported without trial in India, giving the dates of arrest, the places of confinement, and the treatment accorded to each prisoner; and whether the friends of the prisoners are allowed to communicate with them or their relatives to see them at any time.


Only two persons, namely, Lajpat Rai and Ajit Singh, have been recently dealt with under Regulation III. of 1818. The former was arrested on the 9th May, the latter on the 2nd June. As stated in my Answer to the hon. Member on the 18th June, they are confined at Mandalay, where they are lodged in suitable houses within the Fort, receiving allowances for maintenance suited to their condition in life. I am inquiring how far they are permitted to see or communicate with their friends.


I will repeat the Question next week.
