Girl Commits Suicide Under Police Custody in Assam

A college girl from Darrang district committed suicide while under police custody.

According to reports, the deceased identified as Eliza Begum (20)was a survivor of violence at the residence of one Safiqul Islam of village Aminpara under Rowta police station in Udalguri district where she had gone to raise a protest against the proposed marriage (with another girl) of Safiqul Islam whom the victim claimed to be her fiance.

Meanwhile, the Rowta Police rescued the girl from there and then handed her over to Dalgaon Police.

The latter after receiving her handed her over to the authority of DRPHDA for night shelter wherein the next morning she was found hanging in the bathroom.

The death of this young girl who was reportedly under severe trauma and needed necessary mental and medical support, has exposed the lack of holistic approach on the part of the people at the helm of affairs for properly dealing with such delicate issues where the Supreme Court is stated to be very sensitive. After the death of the girl, the police arrested Safiqul Islam and remanded him to judicial custody on Saturday. Meanwhile, several local public organisations of Dalgaon have submitted memoranda to the SP, Darrang demanding a probe into the incident.
