Balangir: A married woman was found hanging last night in a shelter home of Sudapada of Balangir district. The woman was spurned by her lover and it is expected to be the cause behind her death.
The deceased has been identified as Arati Raut who hails from Ganjam district. She had allegedly developed illicit relationship with one Anil Nayak of Balangir; who was also married.
As per sources, Arati dumped her husband and eloped with Anil to Tikrapada here. They here stayed together for close to three months. However, Anil refused to leave his wife and marry Arati. Following this, Arati had lodged a complaint at Balangir Town police.
After a thorough investigation, on January 27 Anil was arrested and forwarded to court and Arati was sent to Sakhi Centre.
At about 1 am last night she was found hanging in her room of her shelter home with a suicide note beside her. Prom facie evidence revealed that extreme emotional trauma might have forced Arati to take such an extreme step, said police sources.
