In June 2015, De was found living in his house then at Robinson Street with the skeletons of his sister Debjani and two Labrador dogs.

With these, the burnt body of De’s father Arabinda was also discovered inside a bathroom.

Psychiatrist Rima Mukherjee said: “It seems as if there was a genetic link. He may have inherited traits of depression from his father.”

Jai Ranjan Ram said De may have taken the extreme step as a result of post psychotic depression. (IANS)


  1. Episodes of depression that comes under the broad topic of personality disorder (DSM V) evokes recurrent thoughts of dead. And its a fact that MDD can’t be cured even when you use high dosages of SSRI. His sister was under MDD since the death of the two dogs and her ‘fast’ brought death to her.
    Both De and his sister are Educated too. I think its high time to include ‘socializing skill development’ sessions from High School Levels and continue to employee levels.
