Ribul had committed suicide at his native place at Mariani by jumping in front of a moving train on March 25.
The deceased TET teacher Ribul in his suicide note, which was posted on Facebook a couple of minutes before his death, alleged that few people from a ‘particular community’ in Dhubri town lured his wife and made some obscene videos of her following which they started blackmailing him and threatened to tarnish his reputation and to take his life.
