A retired school teacher-turned-lawyer in Assam, distressed at his name not being included in the controversial citizens' list, committed suicide on Sunday. This is the third case of suicide after the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC), that excluded 40 lakh people, was published earlier this year. 74-year-old Nirod Baran Das, who practised law after retirement, was found by his family members, hanging in his room at his home in Assam's Mangaldoi, about 100 km from capital Guwahati. He was found hanging after he had returned from his morning walk, a police officer said. Mr Das studied law after serving as a teacher at a government school for 34 years.
