After suspecting his partner of cheating on him, a sixth-semester student at Madhab Choudhury College in Barpeta committed suicide by plunging into a river.

The deceased, Himjyoti Das, was a resident of Patbausi village in Barpeta.

According to reports, residents near the banks of the Beki River in Jania discovered the deceased, who had been missing since Friday.

A suicide note from the deceased was recovered, in which he said, “I have committed a major mistake for which I had to choose this path today. I was a fake lover. I am ashamed of what I’ve done and it is embarrassing for me to be alive. My fault was that I used a fake phone number to disgrace someone. It’s better for me to die. No one should file a police case for my death as the crime I committed itself is odious.”

Meanwhile, a family member of the victim filed an FIR against Mrinmoy Pathak, a Bajali youth, alleging that the former took such drastic steps because of him.

Students at Madhab Choudhury College, on the other hand, have urged that the matter be investigated thoroughly.

Further details are awaited.
