Budding singer hangs self in Bhadrak; suicide note recovered


Bhadrak: A 22-year-old singer, Prabhati Jena committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling of her bedroom at Padmapokhari village under Dhamnagar block in Bhadrak on Saturday.

Reportedly, a suicide note has been recovered from the scene.

The exact reason for her suicide is yet to be known. However, the police, after a preliminary investigation, suspect a failed love affair to be the reason for her suicide.

Prabhati, who used to perform at various stage shows and was popularly known as ‘Melody Queen’ of the locality, hanged herself with a dupatta at her house this morning.

On being informed, Dhamnagar police reached the spot and recovered the body. The police have also sent the body to Bhadrak district headquarters hospital (DHH) for post-mortem.

On the other hand, the suicide note, which Prabhati has written addressing her parents, stated that no one is responsible for her death.

“I really wanted to see my sister’s marriage but couldn’t. You please inform her that I am not able to fulfil this wish. If I will reborn again then I would like to be born as your daughter,” the suicide note stated.

Through the note, she has also requested everyone not to cry for her and wishes for her mortal remains to be buried, instead of being sent for post-mortem or cremated.

According to the deceased’s family, she had gone to perform at an event at Panikoili area in Jajpur district on Thursday night. She returned home in the morning on the following day and went to her room after dinner.

Prabhati, in the suicide note, has stated that she is solely responsible for taking this extreme step and no one is to be blamed for her death. However, the police claimed to have found a love angle to her death.
