Meghalaya governor seeks probe into Gurgaon deaths

Meghalaya governor Satya Pal Malik on July 4 sought investigation into the deaths of two youth from the Northeast under suspicious circumstances at Gurgaon in the National Capital Region recently.

Rosy Sangma died at Alfaa Hospital in Gurgaon on June 24, after the medical staff of the hospital allegedly fed her ice-cream while she was in the ICU.

While her cousin brother – Samuel Sangma was also later found dead, allegedly hanging himself from the ceiling in a hotel at Gurgaon, where he was staying.

The mysterious twin deaths of the air hostess at a private hospital in Gurgaon and her young nephew in quick succession have created outrage in the state and the region. They were residents of Dimapur in Nagaland.

“Governor Malik has taken cognizance of media reports and outrage over the unnatural deaths of both the individuals of Northeast and has taken note of the petition addressed to him on the matter,” a press release from Meghalaya Raj Bhawan in Shillong said.

The release stated that the Meghalaya governor has already taken up the matter with Union home minister Amit Shah through a letter.

Malik assured that he would take up the matter with the concerned authorities for a free, fair and expeditious investigation into the matter and to ensure justice for the two deceased.
