Odia Serial Actress Rashmirekha Ojha commits suicide. She was found hanging in her rented home in Nayapalli area in Odisha. She was only 23. In a significant twist in the death of Odia TV serial actress Rashmirekha Ojha, her father today alleged the involvement of her live-in partner Santosh Patra in the incident. Her father accuses her live-in partner, Santosh Patra, of foul play and says that he had a role to play in her death. 

According to a senior police officer, a case of unnatural death has been registered in the matter. “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 Deputy Commissioner of Police explained. 

Rashmirekha's father told reporters that he was informed about his daughter's death by Santosh. "Our calls to her on Saturday went unanswered. Later, Santosh broke the news to us. We came to know from the landlord of the house that Santosh and Rashmi lived as husband and wife. We had no idea about that", he said. Rashmirekha hailed from Jagatsinghpur district in the state. The actress was a well-known name in the Odisha television industry who shot to fame with her role in the daily soap Kemiti Kahibi Kaha. 

Rashmi, who had been living with her boyfriend for a month and a half, is a resident of Tirtol area of Odisha's Jagatsinghpur district. She had been living in a rented house with her boyfriend Santosh Patra for the past one and a half months. However, he had been living separately from Rashmi for the past few days.
