A General Manager of RBI's Guwahati branch allegedly committed suicide at a hotel in Odisha's Jajpur. The incident took place in Chandikhola under the Barachana police station on Friday morning. He was found hanging from a ceiling fan inside the hotel room.
The deceased General Manager has been identified as Asish Ranjan Samal, a resident of Naraharipur village in Jajpur district.
"According to the deceased Asish Ranjan Samal's wife, he wanted a job transfer to Odisha from Guwahati. Samal was in depression after he did not get the transfer," said Deepak Kumar Jena, Inspector in-Charge at Barachana police station.
He had come to his native village Naraharipur on October 23 to meet his mother. Next day, he was scheduled to leave for Bhubaneswar to meet his wife, a doctor, and son, a Class 12 student.
"The bank officials told his mother that he was going to Bhubaneswar. However, he checked into a hotel in Chandikhola instead. By late October 24 evening, his family members began getting anxious after he did not answer phone calls," said Jena.
On Friday morning, when the hotel staff knocked at the door of the room, Samal did not answer, following which the employess called the police. Upon arrival, the Badachana police found him hanging from the ceiling fan of the room.
"An autopsy has been conducted and we are waiting for the report. We are also analysing the call details of Samal," said Jena.(With IANS inputs)
