Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police today claimed to have solved Subhashree Mohapatra death case by arresting her boyfriend Chittaranjan Jena.
The police have confirmed that it was a case of suicide and not murder. The police had earlier detained Chittaranjan for interrogation in connection with the death case.
“Chhitaranjan was responsible for Subhashree’s death. Chittaranjan had developed a relationship with Subhashree in 2019. Chittaranjan had visited Subhashree’s home several times in her husband’s absence. The duo was quite possessive about their relationship,” said Bhubaneswar Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Prateek Singh in a press meet here.
Subhashree had visited Capital Hospital with her husband’s friend on August 29. This had infuriated Chittaranjan, following which he developed a spat with Subhashree, said the DCP.
“Subhashree had committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan in her home over depression on August 30. She had called Chittaranjan several times over phone before ending her life. Chhitaranjan had removed Subhshree’s body from the fan and kept it on the bed before fleeing the spot. Chittaranjan has been arrested under Section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the IPC,” added the DCP.
Notably, Subhashree was found dead inside her house in Shastri Nagar locality of Bhubaneswar on August 30 evening. The incident occurred when nobody was present at the residence.
