Assam: Man Loses his Death Certificate, Issues a Newspaper Ad Seeking it

LUMDING: Indians are funny people, we may have given birth not only to "Zero" but also to comedy as well. From restaurants offering things you might not have heard existed to spelling errors in signboards that go on to mean something else, India is funny to the core.

A similarly bizarre and at the same time funny incident happened when a man in Assam issued a newspaper advertisement seeking his death certificate that he lost in a bazaar in Lumding, Assam. Senior IPS officer Rupin Sharma shared the newspaper cutting on his Twitter account where he captions the advertisement, "It happens only in India".

The advertisement reads, "I have lost my Death certificate at Lumding Bazar dated 07/09/22 Morning time near about 10.00 AM Registration No: 93/18 SL No: 0068132"

The person issuing the advertisement identified himself as Ranjit Kumar Chakraborty.

This may seem funny at first, but it is serious if you think hard because a death certificate is issued by the superintendent or the resident doctor of the hospital upon a person's death and handed over to the deceased's family. Handing a death certificate by a doctor to a living person is a crime. So, the person has called on his own and even the issuing doctor's downfall with this advertisement.

This is serious because the person who has issued this advertisement can also commit a crime and escape the law because he is already dead. He is also probably casting his vote but according to papers, he is a dead man.

However, the people love this advertisement and have filled the post with their witty answers, where one says, "Where should we deliver it when we find it?, Heaven or Hell?", another one chips in with, "He is a lawyer and is talking in the third person as in court".
