Two of the Ashram sisters on Sunday alleged that neither the Puducherry government nor the police have not acted upon the directive of the National Human Rights Commission to provide food and other facilities to them as assured during an NHRC camp held during April here.
Following a Supreme Court order, five sisters were evicted from the apartments run by the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in December last year. Two of the sisters and their mother died in a family suicide bid following the eviction.
Sisters Jayashree Prasad, Nivedita Prasad, Hemalata Prasad and their father Gadhadhar Prasad had survived.
No FIR
Ms. Hemalata further added that the police had not filed an FIR or made arrests in the issue of abetment to suicide.
The government had not acted upon the NHRC’s directive on ensuring food, a fundamental right, to the sisters, she alleged.
“The Supreme Court had only mentioned about vacating the premises. As inmates of the Ashram we are still entitled to facilities. The government is yet to provide us spinster pension. The government and police have definitely failed us,” said Ms. Hemalata.
Ms. Nivedita and Ms. Hemalata said that they were contemplating their further course of action, following a discussion with the rights’ organisations.
