Indian Man Detained At Atlanta Airport, Dies In Custody

A 58 year old Indian man detained at Atlanta airport, dies in custody

A 58 year old Indian man died on Tuesday while he was still in custody of the United States immigration officials at a hospital in Atlanta. He was detained by the officials last week for allegedly not having required documents to enter the US.
US Immigration and Customs Enforcement reportedly took Atul Kumar Babubhai Patel into custody at the Atlanta City Detention center for two days. Patel arrived at the Atlanta airport on May 10, on a flight from Ecuador. According to the officials, he died of congestive heart failure.
The Atlanta Immigration department released a statement saying that the US Customs and Border Protection refused Patel’s entry into the country as he did not possess the necessary documents. Patel was then detained and transferred to the custody of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

A 58-year-old Indian man who was detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently for not possessing necessary immigration documents while entering the country died in custody at an Atlanta hospital. Claiming that fatalities in its custody are “exceedingly rare”, the ICE added that he was the eighth individual who died in its custody in the fiscal year 2017.
