DJ Azex death: Mystery deepens as ‘breakup with girlfriend’ angle comes to fore

Bhubaneswar: Even as the mystery shrouding the death of DJ Azex alias Akshay Kumar Maharana is yet to be unraveled, a fresh angle of ‘breakup with his girlfriend’ has come to fore making the matter murkier.

As per sources, police are suspecting that Azex might have died by suicide following a breakup with his girlfriend Jigyansa.

A dispute had emerged between Azex and Jigyansa after she came to know that he developed relationship with one of his female friends. The three had made a conference call to resolve the issue, the proof of which is in possession of police, sources said.

While being questioned by police yesterday, Jigyansa reportedly confessed that she had terminated relationship with Azex. Cops are likely to question the female friend of Azex.

On the other hand, the deceased’s mother said Jigyansa gave false statement to police. “My son was not in relationship with anyone, except Jigyansa. She is lying before the police,” said Azex’s mother.

As many as two police teams have been formed to probe the case. While one team is investigating the technical part, another team is questioning the family members and relatives. The probe is now in the final stage and the case will be solved soon, said ACP Manas Gadnayak.

Post-mortem of the deceased has revealed that he died due to asphyxiation. The body also bore some ligature marks, the autopsy report said.

Police have registered an ‘abetment of suicide’ case against his girlfriend and her male friend. The case has been registered under Sections 306 and 34 of the IPC.

DJ Azex was found hanging at his residence in Bhubaneswar on Saturday night. Holding Akshay’s girlfriend and her male friend accountable for abetting his suicide, his mother alleged that he was being subjected to torture and mental harassment by the duo.

As per the contents of the FIR, Akshay and his girlfriend, who is an MBBS student in a private college here, were in a relationship since a year. She was apparently exploiting him for money and was demanding a two-wheeler. WhatsApp chats revealed that Akshay had even transferred Rs 15,000 to her account through PhonePe. The girl however ditched him and got involved with another male friend who started threatening Akshay to leave her failing which he would leak an intimate video of them, the FIR read.

Akshay was known to be one of the most popular DJs in the country.
