Silchar, Dec. 2: Dental surgeon Kunal Bhattacharjee, the only son of a former Congress Rajya Sabha MP from Assam, Kamalendu Bhattacharjee, passed away at 10.45am this morning.
Bhattacharjee, 30, allegedly shot himself in the head inside a bathroom at his clinic on Church Road, around noon on Friday. A complaint was lodged in this connection today by the nursing home where he was first taken.
He was taken to two nursing homes before being shifted to Silchar Medical College and Hospital. A police official said, “Investigations will reveal whether the weapon was a licensed one and belonged to the deceased.”
He is survived by his father, former MP and general secretary of the Assam State Congress Committee, mother Sudeshna Bhattacharjee, and two sisters.
