Reacting to Assam Rifle’s denial that it had discriminated or neglected its jawan suffering from HIV, the Nagaland Lawyers Network for HIV and AIDS (NLNHA) Monday said the admission by AR of not knowing the whereabouts of their jawan itself was a “sheer sign of negligence” and condemnable. Underlining that it was AR’s “bound duty” to take care of their bona fide jawan under any circumstances, the Network, in a statement received here, said AR has violated the jawan’s right to privacy by revealing his identity to the media without his consent nor his family members. Also, pointing out the AR has violated the right to privacy, under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution, the NLNHA said it amounted to breach of confidentiality and indicated the lack of sensitiveness to the whole issue. Substantiating their statement, the Network said the right to privacy had been recognized under various International Treaty, to which India was a signatory, adding that AR was not exceptions to it. It further asserted that statements given by various social organizations with regard to the issue was not mislead by distorted fact as claimed by AR but released only after assertion of the whole circumstances.
