Guwahati: A harrowing incident of alleged suicide involving a prominent BJP leader has emerged in the Bamunimaidam area of Guwahati, Assam. Reports indicate that the case revolves around the circulation of intimate photographs featuring Indrani Tehbildar, a Vice President of the Chamber of Commerce, and another senior leader of the party. The distress caused by the virality of these images purportedly drove Tehbildar to take her own life.
The Guwahati police have initiated an investigation into the matter, registering a case surrounding the circumstances leading to this tragic event. The deceased’s body has been retrieved and sent to the Guwahati Medical College and Hospital for a postmortem examination. The shocking revelation has left the entire city in disbelief and mourning.
The sequence of events appears to trace back to the leaking of private photos online. Sources suggest that Tehbildar had accommodated a senior BJP leader as a tenant in her residence, where the two reportedly engaged in an extramarital relationship. Regrettably, these intimate images surfaced on social media, precipitating a distressing situation for both individuals involved. In the aftermath of the photos’ circulation, Tehbildar took a drastic step, prompting the initiation of a police inquiry and a cyber cell investigation.
Speaking to IANS, Central Guwahati Deputy Commissioner of Police, Deepak Chowdhary, remarked, “The police are diligently investigating the incident. While we have not yet received a formal complaint about the leakage of objectionable pictures, we are thoroughly exploring all angles. The postmortem report from Guwahati Medical College and Hospital will provide us with more insights into the matter.”
As of now, no official complaint has been lodged by Indrani’s family regarding the dissemination of the explicit images. Sources close to the situation reveal that the leakage of objectionable photographs had placed immense psychological strain on Tehbildar. The unfortunate episode has cast a somber shadow over the ascending political careers of both Indrani and the senior leader entangled in the controversy within the state BJP.
The revelation of this tragic incident has not only left the city stunned but also prompted reflection on the broader issues of privacy, mental health, and the emotional toll that such public exposure can inflict. As investigations continue to unravel the complexities surrounding this case, the community grapples with the loss of an esteemed BJP leader, raising poignant questions about the price of privacy and the emotional turmoil that can result from its violation.
