Mentally Deranged Man Chained for 20 Years

Mansharam, a 55-year-old man in the Indian State of Madhya Pradesh has been chained to a post for the past 20 years due to a mental illness. // He spends most of time in a motionless state, according to his family members. Mansharam was chained after he started attacking family members as well as other villagers without any reason, says his brother Bhogchand, a farmer.

His family had reportedly done its best to get him treated, but this did not serve its purpose, forcing them to chain him up. But for all the violence that his family claims he exhibited earlier, Mansharam is a very quiet man today. He spends his days not moving an inch or even trying to talk to anyone. His son, Saudan Singh, a college student, has always seen his father bound in chains. Mansharam's wife Harbai says her husband's signs of mental illness surfaced soon after they were married.

According to Ruma Bhattacharya, a Bhopal-based psychologist, the act of keeping a person in fetters for 20 years is very inhuman.
