New Delhi: A wholesale trader of grocery items allegedly committed suicide in a village in Birbhum district of West Bengal and held the implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST) as directly responsible in a suicide note.

According to a Press Trust of India report, Pinaki Dutta (45) of Narayanpur village was found dead in his room on Monday night. Police said he had consumed poison.

A suicide note was found near the body where it was written: Amar mrityur jonne keu dayi noy... kebalmatro GST dayi (no one is responsible for my death... only GST is responsible).

"We have found a suicide note near the body. It is true that the letters GST are written in the note. But, we are not jumping to conclusions till our investigation is complete," said Birbhum Superintendent of Police N Sudheer Kumar.

A relative of Dutta said the trader was known in the village as a good person, but was worried for the last couple of days over his business. The note has evoked much curiosity in the village and adjoining localities,

An autopsy was conducted on the body at Rampurhat Hospital and was later handed over to the family of the deceased.
