Another commit suicide over NRC

One  Deepak Debnath, of Harisinga district of Udalguri district committed suicide for not having his name in the NRC.

This is the second such incident in a week as earlier a retired teacher Nirode Baran Das also committed suicide in nearby Kharupetia.

As the NRC authorities are determined not to allow 5 documents of the 15 original documents in the time revivification, increasingly people are finding it difficult to assert them after being non included in the final draft NRC.

A retired school teacher has allegedly committed suicide in Mangaldoi district of Assam as his name did not appear in the updated draft National Register of Citizens (NRC), a senior district police official said on Monday.

Nirod Kumar Das, who used to practice as a lawyer after retirement, was found by his family members hanging in his room after he had returned from his morning walk Sunday, Superintendent of police Sreejith T. said.

In a note allegedly left behind by him, 74-year-old Das stated that he was taking the extreme step to “escape the humiliation of being marked as a foreigner after the NRC process,” his family members said.

A police official at the local police station confirmed his death by hanging.

All his family members, including wife, three daughters, their husbands and children as well as most of his relatives names were included in the NRC, they said.
