Ostracized AIDS Patient Commits Suicide in Bihar

Upset with ostracism by family members and villagers, a woman who lost her husband to AIDS and is now diagnosed with the disease //committed suicide in her Bihar home.

Premila Devi, 40, from Tilaei village in Rohtas district, ended her life by jumping into a well Saturday, just a few months after her husband Sunil Mahto died of AIDS.

"She was upset by the way her family members as well as villagers treated her after her husband's death," said a villager Nagender Singh.

According to a Bihar State AIDS Control Society (BSACS) official, there are 8,228 identified cases of HIV infection and 1,100 known cases of full blown AIDS in Bihar. Over 80 people, including 13 children, have died of the disease.

The official added that the presence of hundreds of migrant labourers and an open border with Nepal were some of the factors that contributed to the rising cases of HIV/AIDS in Bihar.

The unofficial figures are much higher with some saying that there are over 40,000 HIV positive cases and over 100 people have died of AIDS.

There are 5.2 million HIV/AIDS cases in the country.
