An employee of the Assam Secretariat allegedly committed suicide in Guwahati on Monday.

Bibek Das, who originally hails from Barpeta, committed suicide by hanging at his residence at Housing Complex at Jawahar Nagar in Guwahati.

He was posted as Senior Administrative Assistant in general administration debarment at Assam Secretariat.

Family sources said he left behind a suicide note blaming senior officials for mental harassment.

In the note reportedly he mentioned that the authorities have accused him of neglecting his duty despite sincerely carrying out his duties.

“I am not a slacker.  I feel I have committed a mistake by devoting a lot of time to works. It pricks my conscience.  During the last four years I helped everybody,” he mentioned in the note.

Das took the extreme step hours after he reached his Guwahati residence from Barpeta.

Sources said that Das had been very disturbed for the last few months, but he did not confide in anyone.
