Darjeeling: Even before the initiation of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) process, a 42-year-old allegedly committed suicide in Jalpaiguri district out of anxiety.
He was suffering from mental agony since he had misplaced documents of his ancestral land which he wanted to use as an NRC document.
Anxiety and fear of NRC and lakhs being rendered homeless have already gripped Bengal, mainly in the rural belt.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has time and again said that she will not allow NRC to take place in Bengal.
42-year-old Annada Rai of Borokamta area of Mainaguri Block of Jalpaiguri was found hanging from a Railway over-bridge near his house on Friday morning.
