Inquiry into student’s suicide

Guwahati, Aug 10: Dimoria College principal Ramcharan Bharali has refuted reports that Chintamoni Bordoloi, the TDC Part-1 student of the college who committed suicide yesterday, took the extreme step due to ragging in the college hostel.

At a press meet today, Bharali said,“On August 7 Chintamoni had taken admission in the college hostel and on August 8 he had taken part in the freshmen social function of the college. He had participated in each programme with enthusiasm and there were no signs that he was suffering from depression. On August 9 he took permission from the hostel superintendent to Jagiroad to Jagiroad to buy books. Two hours after he left, his family members called up the college to convey the news of his suicide.”

Chintamoni Bordoloi had allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of the running Brahmaputra Mail yesterday.

Bharali said,“In the two days that he stayed in the hostel, he never discussed with his fellow freshers about being subjected to ragging. There has been no ragging in the college and we think that his unfortunate death might have been an accident.”

A six-member inquiry commission led by Sonapur Revenue Circle Officer Hariprasad Bora has been instituted to enquire into the death of the student today. The commission will submit its report within 15 days, said Bharali.

Bharali also said the College has lodged an FIR at the Khetri police station.
Meanwhile, Inter Dimoria Regional Student Association president Dibyajyoti Medhi has welcomed the move to institute an inquiry commission and expressed hope that the commission would be neutral. THE SENTINEL
