Assam: Principal commits suicide not being able to use the phone app

The deceased was identified as Gopal Chandra Salma, the principal of an elementary school in Santa Pool Village, Vipria, in the Lakinpur district.

According to sources, the principal hanged himself with a piece of cloth near his house.

Police arrived at the scene shortly after being informed of the incident and recovered the corpse of the principal who was hanging his neck.

At the scene of the incident, police also recovered a suicide note written just before Salma died. In that memo, he explained why he took such an extreme step.

He writes that the current digital system in education has ended his life because he faced some problems of not being able to manage online procedures using mobile applications.

The suicide note also states that the principal was under great pressure due to the failure to operate the mobile app prescribed by the state government.
