Based on the actor’s family complaints, police arrested Chakraborti and charged him with murder and financial fraud. City courts did not grant him bail on Thursday, even though his lawyer claimed that the autopsy report cited suicide as the cause of death.

An ambitious model who lived with two friends in a rental apartment in Nagel Bazaar, her second victim, left a suicide note that no one blamed, according to police officers who investigated her death.

Explained that she was suffering from a life-threatening illness. But her model friend, Diya Das, claimed in front of police and the media that the 21-year-old model was obsessed with the Jargram County Gymnastics coach she met on Facebook. 

The man told the media that the model wanted to be romantic, but they could just be friends. She said, “She has tried two suicide attempts in the past. I tried to help her overcome her depression caused by her work anxiety.

She wants to help the police.” Said. According to police, her model’s diary says she has difficulty paying the rent and monthly payments for her recently purchased cell phone.

 ” As a result of the death of her friend, she has been experiencing deep depression. She continued to talk about dying, even though she had no financial concerns. ”

Police officers involved in the three cases said the actress had gained some fame and was financially stable, while the two models had a hard time extending their careers and interrupting filming. Neither was affiliated with a reputable institution.

HT experts said they believe that failed efforts are the root of depression and blame mobile phones and social media apps as the cause of the problem.

Bengal film director Subratasen, who created many new faces including Concona Senshalma in the first film of 2001, depressed many young men and women as their high ambitions clashed with the harsh realities of the industry. I said I would fall into it.

Sen said, “I’ve only heard about the actress. The two models were virtually unknown. In recent years, I’ve noticed that young people without formal education have moved from the district to Kolkata because they find it easier to take a break. They couldn’t meet the demands of the fascinating world of the city, where it’s normal to buy new dresses for every party. “

 ” The majority of young girls come to Kolkata believing that it’s very easy to become the leading actress in a film, despite the discontent of their parents. Finding easy money ends up in depression for many.

I advise young people not to choose to act as a minor until they graduate and build a career, “Sen added. Popular actor Sudip Mukherjee said he first met the actress at an event four days before her death. ” There is no way I know what these women’s personal lives are like, but it has emerged over the past few years that 100 likes on Instagram and Facebook ‘brave’ photos and videos will help people quickly secure their careers.  I noticed that I was thinking.

Mobile apps create negative exposure. These young people are in a complex state of mind because they have no bonds and are separated from reality, “says Mukherjee. ” There is also a grey industry that lies beneath the real one that attracts many young people.  I don’t run a moral police force, but in a so-called promotional video related to some of the hospitality industry, youth You can find YouTube videos where women are being fooled into exposing themselves. No one knows how much these women will be paid.


 Mumbai-based clinical psychologist Anindita Roy Chowdhury believes peer pressure is a major factor for young people of the victim’s age group, and they lack family attachment. “Mobile phones also play a big role in their lives,” she said. Young people feel that the app will become famous overnight. Many do not hesitate to cross the boundaries of dignity. Her private life will be public.

This has eroded the values ​​of our society. It is also true that many young girls in suburban homes are being pressured to make money from an early age. That drives them into the race for easy money, “Roy Chowdry said. Suicide increased by 54% during the 2020 Covid hit, a  total increase from 181 in 2019 to 278 last year. This was one of the highest increases in suicide in a year, and this trend was reflected in some of the 53 cities surveyed.

Data released in the latest NCRB suicide and traffic report for 2020, released  Thursday, showed a 200% increase in suicide in Srinagar, a 65% increase in Rancho and a 50% increase in Lucknow. However, NCRB reports that the city-wide suicide rate is 2,  calculated as the number of suicides per 1,000 people. This is considered a genuine indicator.

This is only part of the national average of 14.8 and only part of the national average of 11.3. Kolkata has the second lowest suicide rate in the country after Srinagar (0.5).  The total number of suicides in the city is also much lower than in almost every other metro. Even in Bengal, the highest number of suicides in the first year of the pandemic was not in Kolkata, but in Asansor (329 people committed suicide in 2020). Compared to 278 cases in Kolkata, Delhi reported 3,025 suicides, an increase of almost 25% from 2019.

Chennai reported 2,430 suicides and 2,196 Bangalore in 2020. Suicide is increasing during pandemics in almost every city in India, except for Dhanbad and Agra. According to the investigation, the suicide in Kolkata was not due to bankruptcy or unemployment. Instead, 197 cases were due to mental illness and 3 cases were due to physical illness. Given the content of the suicide note, the 43 reasons were marital issues, dowry demands, and extramarital negotiations.

Substance abuse and test failures were also cited among the many reasons that led to drastic behaviour. June last year was one of the worst months. On June 9, four people committed suicide in the city, including a 10-year-old boy. The three drank poison while the child hung his neck. A few days later, on June 14, Kolkata police reported five suicides. Among the victims were 38 years old, two elderly people and two middle-aged people. All five hung their necks. The same day, Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput hung his head.

 Seven suicides were reported in Kolkata on June 17 of the same week. Among the victims were two other 10-year-olds, 19-year-olds, and 30-year-olds. In the first week of July, three people committed suicide, including a police officer who committed suicide. While biological, psychological and sociological reasons are the cause of mental vulnerabilities, Indians are falsely conditioned to believe that they should never admit their vulnerabilities.


 The advisor said. “It drives many to suicide without explicit warning,” said psychological counsellor Soumya Mukherjee. There is no reason to commit suicide, says psychiatrist J Ram. ” It is complicated to understand depression because it is the result of many factors interacting together. Therefore, there are always many reasons to drive a person to suicide in general. Many people, especially those who are prone to depression, are isolated during a pandemic. The feeling is like that I’m doing it,” Ram says. He added that many people suffering from depression often refuse to help because they believe they are not men.
