Popular Odia television actress Rashmirekha Ojha was recently found hanging at her rented home in Nayapalli area. Her father alleged that her live-in partner, Santosh Patra, had a role to play in her death.

Rashmirekha, who hailed from Sanketpatana under Tirtol police limits in Jagatsinghpur district, had come to Bhubaneswar after completing +2 course for pursuing a career in acting.

She became popular with her role in serial ‘Kemiti Kahibi Kaha’.

What police said?

Police said, "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," the DCP explained.

Ojha's father told media persons that he was informed about her death by Patra.
