§ 19. Mr. SNOWDEN
asked if the Report on the case of Ulaskar Dutt, which was promised on the 14th November, has been received from India; and, if so, does the Report admit that his madness was caused by the torture to which he was subjected in prison?
§ Mr. H. BAKER
The Report has been received. Ulaskar Dutt was pronounced to be insane after two months' observation in the medical ward. He suffered from daily attacks of malarial fever accompanied by convulsions, and his insanity is attributed to severe malarial infection. The Government of India are satisfied that it did not result from prison treatment.
§ Mr. SNOWDEN
Is it not a fact that this man's hands were tied to pillars, and that he was held in that position for a considerable time, and that after scientific treatment signs of insanity followed?
