Bhubaneswar: Though veteran Odia actor Raimohan Parida’s death is an instance of a suicidal act, in a latest development, the Post-mortem report confirmed that the actor died of asphyxia due to hanging.
This has been informed by sources at Capital Hospital, Bhubaneswar.
On Monday, Bhubaneswar DCP Prateek Singh said that Parida likely had resorted to the extreme step because of depression while his family and friends could not cite any specific cause.
