Uttar Pradesh: Elderly man going around government offices to prove himself ‘alive’

Sethu has been relentlessly trying in the past these years to prove himself alive and has been going door to door requesting concerned officials to rectify the government records.

An elderly man hailing form Jounpur, Uttar Pradesh has been declared dead in government records, has been going around knocking doors of every government office, holding a placard which read, ‘saheb mein zinda hoon’, meaning ‘sir, I’m still alive’.

According to reports, a man named Sahtu, hailing from Bhusodi village in Shahganj Tehsil, Jounpur, Uttar Pradesh, has been denied of all government schemes, such as housing and toilet facilities since he has been pronounced dead in all government records since the last three years.

As per reports, Sahtu has been relentlessly trying in the past these years to prove himself alive and has been going office to office requesting concerned officials to rectify the government records, but according to him, his plea has not been heard by anyone.

And now in his desperation to get justice, he has been reported to be roaming around holding a placard which read that he is still alive.

The district magistrate has, however, assured to look into the matter and provide all possible assistance to the elderly man. He furthered that all the facilities which Sethu has been denied of, all this while, will be made available to him and the culprits responsible for this harassment would be punished soon.
