NCHRO condoles the Death of Dr.Ilina Sen

Dr.Ilina Sen

We express deep and sincere condolences for the sad demise of Dr.Ilina Sen today morning at 7 am. She was an activist, writer and academic who had dedicated her life for the progress and empowerment of the tribals and downtrodden people of Chhattisgarh. She has written two books– Inside Chhattisgarh: A Political Memoir and Sukhavasin: The Migrant Woman of Chhattisgarh. She was also a professor at Antarrashtriya Hindi Vishwavidyalaya in Wardha, Maharashtra.

When Ilina’s husband and the well known activist Dr Binayak Sen was arrested on charges of sedition in 2007 under draconian laws like UAPA and Chhattisgarh Public Safety Act, it was Ilina who spearheaded the legal battle for his release and campaigned against the wrongful arrests of Adivasis in Chhattisgarh.

We share our the grief with Dr Binayak Sen and other family members.
