HC Deb 06 April 1936 vol 310 c2392

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that Mr. J. Adhikari, of Bombay, who has been interned at Bijapur without trial since August, 1934, is suffering seriously from haemophilia, for the treatment of which no adequate facilities are available in India; that a restricted passport was granted to Mr. Adhikari for a single journey to England for the purpose of undergoing special treatment, and that this passport was suddenly cancelled for reasons stated to be political; and whether he will state the nature of these reasons and permit Mr. Adhikari to visit this country in order to receive the necessary medical treatment?


I am awaiting a report from the Government of India regarding the health of Mr. J. M. Adhikari, and will communicate with the hon. Member when it is received.
