Somnath Gogoi being treated at a hospital in Dibrugarh.

Somnath Gogoi, a budding sound engineer from North Lakhimpur, who met with an accident here on May 27, is battling for his life in a private hospital in Dibrugarh.

A student of Sound Recording and Design from Satyajit Ray Film and Teelvision Institute (SRFTI), Kolkata, Gogoi has been a budding talent in the field of film making and was enrolled in the premier institute despite the economic hardships of the family.

Son of late Konpona Gogoi, Somnath met with the accident while visiting home for his passport application work.

According to Kolkata Assamese Cultural Association (KACA) Somnath’s condition is very critical and has injuries on his head, chest and multiple fractures on legs, body fluids filled the lungs and blood clot in brain.

A KACA post in Facebook says a brain surgery has been done on Somnath and he has been put in ventilation for a long period of time.

The organisation also says that Somnath’s family is in financial crisis and is in need of urgent help. KACA extended some help which is not sufficient for the multiple surgeries and operations to undergo.

Therefore a crowd funding campaign has been launched by KACA to contribute any amount of money for the treatment of the injured student.

The KACA has appealed to contribute money to Kolkata Assamese Cultural Association, A/c no-0389010331319, United Bank of India, Old Court House Street Branch, IFSC : UTBI0OCH175 and to send the transaction number on phone number 9002040111 mentioning “for treatment of Somnath GogoI”.

The KAAC also says that the collection and handover details will be shared with all donors. The members of Somnath family have also shared a phone number–7002143247 for contact.
