Faizan death case: Assam CM Himanta Biswa’s letter to Mamata


Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has urged upon his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee for her intervention into the death of Faizan Ahmed, a student of IIT-Kharagpur, hailing from Eastern Assam’s Tinsukia district.

In his letter, Chief Minister Sarma also requested the West Bengal Chief Minister for a thorough probe into the circumstances surrounding the death of Faizan.

It may be noted that Faizan Ahmed, from Assam’s Tinsukia district who was an IIT Kharagpur third year mechanical engineering student was found dead in his hostel room on 14 October.

His parents after observing his body filed a case with the local police in Kharagpur requesting the Superintending of Police, Paschim Medinipur, West Bengal and Inspector-in-charge of Kharagpur (Town) Police Station for an investigation.

Hopefully, a thorough investigation will unearth the truth leading to the death of the bright student whose untimely demise has caused a deep sense of grief across the state.
