Mr. Gorkh told me that although Mr. Gonçalves' health had become visibly unhealthy, he was given only paracetamol and antibiotic tablets.

However, no examinations were carried out.On September 5, after the warden Mr. Dawley learned that Mr. Gonsalves' fever and cough had not come down, he was taken to the prison hospital for some examinations; but since there was no one to perform these examinations, he was sent again to the barracks by saying he could have dengue K or typhoid.
