Rashmirekha Ojha, a popular Odia television performer, died at her leased house in Bhubaneswar’s Nayapalli region. According to PTI, her father claimed that her live-in lover, Santosh Patra, played a role in her death.
According to the report, which cited a senior police official, a case of unnatural death has been lodged in the situation. According to the DCP, the 23-year-old actor was discovered dead “during the night of June 18.” The DCP said, “The police are awaiting the results of her autopsy. At first glance, it appears to be a suicide, as she left a letter indicating that no one was to blame for her death.”
Rashmirekha’s father told reporters that Santosh notified him of his daughter’s death. “On Saturday, our calls to her remained unanswered. Santosh later relayed the news to us. The landlord of the residence informed us that Santosh and Rashmi lived together as husband and wife. That was completely unknown to us “he remarked. Rashmirekha was from the state’s Jagatsinghpur district. She rose to prominence in the Odia television business after appearing in the daily serial Kemiti Kahibi Kaha.
Rashmirekha’s death came just a few weeks after Bengali actor Bidisha De Majumdar, 21, was discovered dead in her Kolkata flat. According to a PTI report, police broke through the door of her residence on May 25 and later ordered an investigation.
According to a police officer, a suicide note was discovered in which she stated that she was taking the extreme measure owing to a lack of professional options. Model Santu Mondal responded to the news on social media, writing, “What motivated you to do this? You just changed your Facebook DP, cover photo, and Instagram DP. You stated following serial actress Pallabi Dey’s suicide that such a fast action should not have been taken. And now you’ve done the exact same thing.” Bidisha has previously worked on the film Bhaar- The Clown (2021), which starred famous actor Debraj Mukherjee.
Prior to that, actress Pallabi Dey was discovered dead in her leased apartment in South Delhi’s Garfa neighbourhood. The cops stated it seemed to be a suicide attempt at first glance and detained her live-in partner.
