Binayak Sen and the cost of dissent in India

The Lancet, the prestigious medical journal, published from London since October 5, 1823, has featured in its issue dated May 2, 2009 a special report on the incarceration of Dr. Binayak Sen.

Says Lancet: “Indian doctor, Binayak Sen, continues to pay a steep price for defending the health and rights of tribal communities in the central India state of Chhattisgarh.”

The report is by Patralekha Chatterjee.
