BSF lady constable found dead in West Bengal

Cooch Behar, March 21 (KMS) The dead body of a woman constable of Indian Border Security Force (BSF) was found in the Indian state West Bengal.

The body of the BSF lady constable Dhritashri Rabha, a 28-year-old karate martial artist and sporting champion for the force was found under mysterious circumstances inside the battalion complex in Cooch Behar city.

Dhritashri, who hailed from Boko town of the Assam state, travelled to the 129 Battalion in Cooch Behar on 20th July 2022 to participate in a karate competition. She was based at the 45th Battalion BSF in Hallaidiganj, West Garo Hills district of Meghalaya.

Although the BSF has issued preliminary reports claiming the incident to be a case of suicide, the family and relatives of the constable remain dissatisfied with the force’s account of events.

Dhritashri’s younger sister, Deepsikha Rabha, revealed that they were informed of the incident around 10 am on Monday by one of Dhritashri’s friends from Cooch Behar, but no information was provided by the BSF. It was only later that the BSF got in touch with the family.

Deepsikha added, “I personally feel that she didn’t die of suicide, but I suspect it was a murder.”

Dhritashri’s mother, Leela Rabha, stated that she wanted to come home next month to celebrate traditional festival Rongali Bihu. “Even on Sunday night, she spoke with us very nicely and asked us to prepare a list of necessary items so that she could bring them from the canteen when she comes home on leave,” she added.
