A woman allegedly committed suicide by jumping into a well in Assam’s Tezpur district after reportedly being told that her name is missing from the final NRC list. The woman has been identified as Sahera Khatoon(55). She was a resident of No 1 Dolabari, Tezpur.
It may be mentioned that Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on the eve of final publication appealed to the people of the state not to panic if their names do not figure in the final list of NRC.
The Assam police also urged the public not to believe in rumours related to NRC.
The government has made elaborate security arrangements across the state and the administration has also imposed prohibitory orders under Section 144 Criminal Procedure Code (Cr PC) in sensitive areas of the 14 districts of the state.
