Bhubaneswar: In a heartwrenching incident, a young couple and their 15-month-old daughter were found hanging under mysterious circumstances Thursday morning inside a rented house at Chintamaniswar locality under Laxmisagar police limits of Bhubaneswar.
According to a police source, the couple belonged to Maharashtra and was staying in the house on Plot No-1508 of Chintamaniswar on a monthly rent basis. The deceased were identified as Tushar Rajendra Jagtab, his wife Nila Jagtab and their minor daughter Sibinya. However, the cause of their death has not been ascertained yet.
On being informed by local residents, Laxmisagar police reached the spot, recovered the three bodies and sent to Capital Hospital in Unit-6 for post-mortem. Police have registered a case in this connection and launched a probe, the official stated.
