Fear of CAA: Youth Commits Suicide Due to Citizenship Loss Anxiety

A man named Debasis Sengupta committed suicide fearing the loss of his citizenship. The family alleged that 31-year-old Debasis took his own life due to the fear of CAA-NRC.

Police stated that Debasis’s body was recovered from his maternal uncle’s house on Wednesday. The deceased was a resident of Netajinagar in Kolkata.

The deceased’s family alleged, “He was ‘terrified’ of losing his citizenship. He committed suicide because his parents did not have records.”

It is known that Debasis’s parents came to this country as refugees. He was scared because his father had no valid documents.

If CAA-NRC were to be implemented, they may lose their citizenship, and they could even be jailed.

Debasis repeatedly expressed concerns to his family about the looming threat of being stripped of citizenship and the possibility of incarceration.

Debasis’s aunt, Sobha Roy said, “He always told me what would happen if I was thrown out. Where to go? I said, why chase? Why are you afraid?”

According to the family, Debasis went to his maternal uncle’s house on March 19. His body was found hanging at his maternal uncle’s house on March 20.

Following Debasis’s tragic death, his father, Tapan Sengupta, filed a complaint with the Netajinagar Police Station. In his complaint, he said his son was under ‘severe mental stress’ after the CAA was announced. He was worried about not having the necessary documents. Based on the complaint, the police have launched an investigation.

Joint Commissioner of Kolkata Police (Headquarters) Meeraj Khalid stated, “The body was recovered from Subhashgram under Baruipur district police jurisdiction. He is a resident of Netajinagar police station. The victim’s family has lodged a complaint with the local police station.”

TMC’s Kunal Ghosh, Shashi Panja, Saayoni Ghosh, Arup Chakraborty, and Nadimul Haque met the family on Thursday.

Trinamool leaders paid their last respects by placing a wreath on Debasis’s body. Additionally, the Trinamool delegation has assured to stand by the family of the deceased.

The TMC has blamed the Modi government’s decision for the deaths. State minister Chandrima Bhattacharya said, “We have repeatedly said that attempts are being made to introduce CAA and NRC in the country illegally. The laws are undemocratic. They will have adverse repercussions on the public mind and spread panic. It has been proved that our thinking is not unfounded. 31-year-old Debasis committed suicide fearing CAA. He was declared brought dead at Sonarpur Rural Hospital. His family has clarified that Debasis was terrified of CAA. He kept saying that citizenship will not be lost because of NRC and CAA. This is the reason for his suicide. Does the Prime Minister see this? There is no end to this bloodthirst. He stood in front of his conscience and asked himself.”

BJP leader Prannoy Roy said, “The Chief Minister has instigated people on CAA day after day. Intimidating. He is responsible for this death. An FIR should be lodged against him immediately, and he should be arrested.”
