As the Bhubaneswar police intensify its investigation into the suicide of television actress Rashmirekha, a video containing a dance by the actress in a bar has gone viral in social media platforms.
The video shows the deceased actress dancing to the tunes of a popular Odia music video, supposedly at a bar.
Though the exact date of the video recording is yet to be verified, it has been circulating in the social media as her last video before death.
On the other hand, Rashmirekha’s ex-boyfriend Raja appeared before the Nayapalli police station after he was served a notice for the same. He is currently being questioned by the police regarding the death.
A notice was also served on her reported boyfriend Santosh Patra, but he has gone missing since Rashmirekha’s death. However, the police have handed over the summon to his family. He has been asked to appear at Nayapalli police station immediately and cooperate in the investigation.
Earlier, the family members of the actress had held Patra responsible for her death.
Yesterday, the post-mortem report of Rashmirekha mentioned hanging as a possible cause of death. The findings of the autopsy report said there were no internal or external injury marks on Rashmirekha’s body. Rashmirekha had possibly died 24 to 36 hours prior to the conduct of the post-mortem, the report added.
Denying to have conducted any viscera test, Bhubaneswar DCP, Prateek Singh said, “The circumstantial evidence does not point towards poisoning, so we did not conduct a viscera test. We are continuing the investigation and hopefully reach a conclusion soon enough.”
It is pertinent to mention here that Rashmirekha’s body was found hanging in her rented house at Gadasahi in Nayapalli area of Bhubaneswar on June 20.
