Dhenkanal: In an unusual incident, a person committed suicide inside a temple at Nuapatna village under Hindol block of Odisha’s Dhenkanal district last night reportedly due to unfulfillment of his wishes.
Body of Niranjan Sahu (35), the deceased, was found in a hanging state at the temple this morning. On being informed, police reached the spot, seized the body and sent it for post-mortem.
According to reports, Sahu had been prostrating before the idols of the deities at the temple for the last 21 days praying for recovery from depression and illness.
