Rourkela: A deputy manager of Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) was found hanging from the ceiling of his official quarters in Sector-2 of the Steel City on Sunday morning.
The deceased has been identified as Jai Pravesh (31), a resident of Bharatpur in Rajasthan. He was working in the Plate Mill Department of the Rourkela Steel Plant.
According to sources, Pravesh’s wife, who was also staying with him at RSP quarters, had gone to her parental house in Meerut. Last night she called up Pravesh, but the phone went unanswered.
Later, Pravesh’s wife called up to his friends and asked them to inquire as to why her husband was not picking up the calls. Pravesh’s friends reached his quarters this morning only to find him hanging from the ceiling.
Upon being informed, Sector-3 police rushed to the spot and sent the body to Ispat General Hospital (IGH) for post-mortem.

While the exact reason behind his death is yet to be ascertained, it is suspected that he might have committed suicide.
