Hasan Ali of Hans Chopra village in Assam narrowly escaped death when his friends cut down the rope he had used to hang himself after a goof up by the National Register of Citizens (NRC) authority led to his name being left out of the NRC draft.
Ali had filed his application in 2015 and was shocked to discover that his name was missing from the list. When he complained to the NRC Authority he was told that he had not submitted any application. But Ali promptly produced not only a receipt, but also the Application Registration Number (ARN).
He sent a complaint letter to the NSK where he had filed his application. That’s when it was discovered that his application had been placed with D Voters documents by accident and this is why his paperwork was never processed.
The NRC authority accepted its mistake and promised to fix the problem. The Deputy Commissioner of Morigaon directed the circle officer and CRCR to immediately rectify the issue. But no progress was made and a frustrated Ali tried to hang himself on March 8. Luckily he had a lot of friends who genuinely cared about him.
After preventing his suicide they have been constantly providing him support. CJP Community Volunteers also reached the spot within 30 minutes and have not only offered him assistance with the NRC process, but have also been counselling him not to lose hope. They are now coordinating with the local NSK to promptly resolve the matter.
