Released ... But wanted to stay in prison
One day when I visited the men’s barrack, a middle aged man called me and asked to give him some poison to die. I asked him, how much ?.. one kilo ? ….Then I sat with him to find out why he wanted poison.
Mohan Rao is an RMP doctor from Hyderabad city. He hails from one of the remote villages. He had his family of wife and three children. His entry into prison is very interesting. He came to know that his family was having a dispute of land with neighboring family. He rushed to help his old father and brothers. While the tough of war was going on , he took a stick and gave a blow to the man on the opposite side. He fell on the ground and died… RMP was booked on murder case and brought him to the prison. He had to remain in prison for five years. During that period nobody of his own people not even his father came to visit him. His wife’s people tried to get him our on bail and the bail plea was sanctioned.
Meanwhile some of his friends came to visit him . And they told him that the opposite party is waiting to kill him as soon as he comes out of the prison.. So he decided not to go out but die in the prison itself by taking poison. After spending sometime in counseling him, I got his father’s address. I made one of our volunteers to write a letter to his asking to come and see me . I signed the letter as Sr. Leena . After reading the letter he went to MGM hospital and asked for me showing the letter. Finally someone directed him and his son to our convent. The family is living very good condition. The brothers are working in the Govt. posts. I spoke to them, after all he came to help you in the dispute, During the fight your son happened to kill someone on the opposite party. You and your other sons left the prison on getting bail, leaving this son in the prison.. Now you have to accept him and do whatever you can to save his life. He got his bail sanctioned by his brother in-law.
The father and son did not want this fellow to go to that village , for they also knew the danger for him. Our RMP doctor was released and I went with him along with one of my volunteers. We met the victim family and others who were waiting to finish up our doctor , spoke to them ate with them spent two days in the village and pacified the whole situation. Our RMP is released of all the problems and working in the same place living haply with his family.
