Siliguri : The decomposing body of an outsider hanging from a tree inside the North Bengal University campus has caused a stir.
The body of a man was found hanging from a tree near Gate No. 2 of the university on Saturday. There is no boundary wall in that part. According to police sources, the deceased was identified as Suchitra Sarkar, 50. The house is in Rangapani area. The fish trader had been missing for several days. But his body was found on campus, raising questions about the university’s security. Students and teachers have also questioned the role of the Watch and Ward in charge of university security.
University Vice-Chancellor Subiresh Bhattacharya said, “During the construction of the Asian Highway, the boundary wall along the road in front of the university was broken. Despite repeated requests to the National Roads Authority, they did not build the boundary wall. Authorities claim that outsiders are entering freely through a large part of the broken-down campus. According to Sajal Chakraborty, an official in charge of Watch and Ward, the truck driver, Khalasira and other outsiders entered the forest through the broken part of the boundary wall in front of the university and defecated in the forest. On this day, he went to defecate in the forest on the other side of the campus with the broken part of a milky wall of the area and claimed to have seen the hanging body. He informed the security guards at Gate No. 2.
It is not clear whether the man committed suicide or was killed. But it is very dangerous for anyone to use the university campus for criminal purposes. Their claim that the security of the campus is not secure is clear in this case. There is no surveillance system in all these places by installing closed circuit cameras with the latest technology. So many have criticized the role of the authorities. Many complained that the border wall was broken in many places in the back. Outside trucks also travel through the campus.
Matigara-Naxalbari MLA Anandamoy Barman went to the spot on that day. He questioned how the body of a man was hanging on the university campus and why the matter did not come to the notice of the security guards. In the words of a person named Dilip Mallick, “Looking at the condition of the body, it seems that someone has killed and hanged the person. There were glasses and medicines. ” Fazlur Rahman, a former university worker, said: “The issue is worrying. The security aspect has been neglected. This is a sign of danger for students, teachers and staff. “
