Sundargarh: In a shocking incident, a man allegedly died by suicide after killing his wife in Talsara in Sundargarh district of Odisha on Tuesday night. The deceased were identified as Hemant Dandasena and spouse Rashmi of Damakuda village within Talsara police limits.
As per reports, Hemant first asphyxiated Rashmi and then hung himself. Domestic dispute is believed to have led him to take such a drastic step.

After Hemant’s return they had started living separately. However, trouble was brewing between the two over domestic issues. On Tuesday night, distressed over the conflict, Hemant smothered Rashmi with a pillow and then hung himself.
Police reached the spot after getting information and started investigation. The bodies have been seized for postmortem and the exact cause of death will be ascertained after the autopsy report arrives. A case has been registered.
