Bhubaneswar: The death of gym owner Rashmi Ranjan Biswal at Bhakarsahi under Balipatna police limits on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar has become more mysterious with a video of the deceased before his demise surfacing on social media platforms and going viral.
Biswal had recorded a video before his death, in which he said that several persons, including some of his family members, were trying to murder him.
“In case I die, they should be punished,” he said in the clip. The incident came to fore after the video went viral on social media.
Suspicion of foul play arose in the matter as Biswal’s family members performed his last rites without informing the police about the death.
Police have registered a murder case and started an investigation into the incident while a forensic team collected samples from the cremation ground for examination.
Circumstantial evidences suggest that it is a case of murder, police said.
