Suicide whiff in twin deaths

Bokaro, Aug. 2: Two persons, including a teenaged girl, were found hanging in different places of Bokaro district around the same time last night.

Although suicide is being suspected in both the cases, the deceased have not left behind any note.

In the first incident that occurred at 10pm, the 19-year-old daughter of a BCCL employee was found dead at their residential quarters (No. M-256) at Dugda, 20km from Bokaro steel city. A student of RSP Inter-college Chandrapura, Bokaro, the girl retired to her room around 8pm on the pretext of studies and shut the door, but didn’t lock it.

“When she did not come out for dinner even at 10.30pm, my wife went to call her. As she pushed the door open, she saw our daughter hanging from a rod on the ceiling with the help of a nylon rope,” the shocked father, who recorded his statements at Dugda police station, said.

Bokaro SP Jitendra Singh said they were inquiring into the reasons behind the unnatural death.

Bokaro steel plant employee Narayan Kewat (39) was found hanging at his workplace. A resident of Balidih, around 16km from Bokaro steel city, Kewat was an operator at the rolling mill shop.

Yesterday, he was on the 2pm-10pm shift.

A few employees passing by the product dispatch building saw him hanging from a pipe around 9pm. They informed the Central Industrial Security Force, which guards the plant premises, who, in turn, contacted Maraphari police.

Marapahari police station in-charge R.K. Yadav said this morning: “An investigation has been launched.”

Kewat has left behind his wife and two children.
