Ashok Dey, the father of the medical student found hanging in a hostel room in Agartala, has lodged an FIR in the NCC police station regarding his son’s death.

Dey’s son Adarsh was a ninth semester student of the Agartala Government Medical College (AGMC) and his fellow inmates had found him hanging in his room on the morning of December 28.

Filing the FIR on Wednesday, Ashok Dey claimed that his son has been murdered.

The 23-year-old student hailed from Belonia in South Tripura and was known to be good in academics.

Ashok said that the authorities of the medical college did not inform the police of his son’s death.

“If my son had committed suicide by hanging, why was his body taken to the hospital? Why didn’t the medical college authorities inform the police?” said the father.

“Even after two days of the incident, no police has come to meet me.  Moreover, the right hand of my son was stiff, as if it had been broken,” he said.

The father had reportedly received a phone call on December 28 from a relative that his son had met with a severe accident.

He along with his wife rushed to Agartala from Belonia and reached the casualty ward of the trauma centre in AGMC at 10:30 pm on December 28.

There he found his younger brother Chandra Sekhar Dey waiting for them.

“To my shock, I found my son lying dead in the casualty ward. This is a murder and not suicide,” said Ashok.

Senior CPIM leader and leader of the opposition in Tripura, Badal Choudhury demanded a high-level investigation to ascertain the cause behind the tragic death of the medical student.

“Considering the gravity of the situation, a high-level probe must be conducted,” Choudhury said.
