Bhubaneswar: A youth allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself using his girlfriend's dupatta in a guest house at Patia in Bhubaneswar today.
The deceased identified as Amit Jena from Dhenkanal, had checked in with his girlfriend today, said the manager of the guest house.
The couple had stayed in the said guest house two-three times earlier in the past claiming to be legally married, added the manager.
Surprisingly, the girlfriend without informing the police was shifting the body of the youth to the ground floor of the guest house with the help of her relatives, informed sources.
As per sources, what is even more surprising is the fact that the girl who was sharing the same room, feigned ignorance about the suicide.
On being informed, Chandrasekharpur Police rushed to the spot and recovered the dead body.
Speaking to media, Bhubaneswar DCP Anup Kumar Sahoo said, the girl has been detained and investigation is underway.
