Dhananjoy wishes to donate eyes, kidneys

August 12, 2004 19:30 IST

Dhananjoy Chatterjee has expressed a wish to donate his eyes and kidneys after he is hanged on August 14.

He had conveyed the wish to his father Bangshidar and brother Bikas when they had last met him at the Alipore Central Jail in Kolkata a few days ago.

Dhananjoy hanging: August 14, 0430 IST

This was revealed by his neighbour at Kuludihi village in Bankura district and schoolteacher Haridas Chatterjee, who got to know about it from Dhananjoy's brother Bikas on Wednesday.

"If I am hanged, please donate my eyes and kidneys to the government. Please let them know it in advance," Dhananjoy reportedly told Bikas.

The family is grieving. They had believed that Dhananjoy would escape the noose as he had twice earlier. His wife Poornima is at her father's place and is completely shattered.
