Renowned Assam Doctor Couple Arrested for Abusing 3-year-old Daughter, Wife Absconding
The Assam Police arrested Dr. Walliul Islam, a well-known surgeon in Assam, and his maid Lakshmi Nath in Guwahati’s Paltan Bazar area on Saturday, May 6, 2023, for allegedly abusing their three-year-old daughter for several months. Dr. Sangeeta Datta, Dr. Islam’s wife and a prominent psychiatrist, is currently absconding. The shocking incident came to light after child rights activist Miguel Das Queah wrote about it on his social media platform. The police rescued the girl and detained Dr. Islam and Nath. The police interrogated them overnight before arresting them the next morning. Dr. Datta is still missing but has posted videos on social media pleading innocence. The police are currently searching for her. The Paltan Bazar police have registered a case and are likely to produce the accused before a court soon.
Details of the Incident
The couple allegedly tied up their daughter, who they reportedly adopted, on their terrace under the scorching summer sun. Witnesses have stated that the child had bruises all over her body and burn injury marks on her bottom. Miguel had received several complaints about the couple’s behaviour, but people were too afraid to file a complaint. Finally, someone called the police, leading to the couple’s arrest. Miguel has also urged the police to check the adoption documents, talk to the child’s teachers and neighbours, and investigate the bruises.
