Odia TV actress Rashmirekha Ojha dies by suicide; family accuses live-in partner for death

Odia TV actress Rashmirekha Ojha was reportedly found hanging in her apartment in the Nayapalli area in Bhubaneswar. The actress was seen hanging from her ceiling fan and it was the landlord of the house who reportedly informed the police about the same. The police smashed the door and reportedly found Rashmirekha dead. Rashmirekha was from Tirtol area of Jagatsinghpur and was reportedly in a live-in relationship with a man called Santosh Patra. Now, the actress’ family has claimed that he had something to do with her demise.

As per the reports, the police has registered a case of unnatural death. Reportedly, a suicide note was also captured in the room and it mentioned that no one has to be accused for her death. However, Rashmirekha’s father has pointed allegations at Santosh Patra. As reported by OdishaTV, the father told, “Their landlord said Santosh Patra and Rashmi were living as husband-wife. We had no clue about her marriage. I have also no idea who has written that purported suicide note. If both are married, then Santosh is the murderer. A probe should be launched and he should be jailed.”

The DCP informed, “The 23-year-old actress was found hanging from the ceiling of her rented home on the night of June 18. The police are waiting for her post-mortem report to arrive. Prima facie, it seems to be a case of suicide as she left behind a note stating that no one was responsible for her death.”

Rashmirekha Ojha was well known for her TV show Kemiti Kahibi Kaha. She was just 23-year-old at the time of her death.
