Techie ends her life over failed marriage| Praveen Kumar,
A 32-year-old IT firm employee committed suicide on Sunday, leaving a death note that implicates her husband and in-laws for the act. C Smitha was married nine years back and had come back to her parents’ house within 10 months of staying with her husband. However, it is said that there were compromise meetings between both the families to reunite the couple, which did not work.
Her husband is also alleged to have gone to her house and apologised to her, asking her to return. The woman committed suicide by hanging on Sunday, when her family was out of town. Her family had gone out of station on Saturday and when they called her on Saturday, there was no response.
So they sent a relative to the house in Postal Colony in Sanjaynagar police limits. It was the relative who discovered the suicide. The death note is said to have been on the table in the room she committed suicide in. The police are on the lookout for the husband and the inlaws as they are not in the house they used to live in before.
“Smitha got married to a software engineer HP Balaji, a resident of Malleswaram in June 2008. Within a few days of the marriage, the victim is alleged to have been mentally harassed by her husband and in-laws over petty issues. The victim had reported the matter to her parents. Elders of both sides tried to sort the issue out, but they failed. The victim is said to have been mentally harassed by her in-laws, who also asked her to die. Unable to bear the mental harassment, the victim returned to her parents’ house and started living with them,” said an officer.
Even after she returned to her parents’ house, efforts were on to reunite the couple. “Balaji and his parents who were earlier staying in Malleswaram have shifted out. Efforts are being made to trace them. The victim in her death note has written the names of her husband and in-laws holding them responsible for the incident,” the officer said.
The Sanjaynagar police have registered a case of abetment of suicide under section 306 of the Indian Penal Code against the accused.

Trio held for techie murder in Kendrapara
Kendrapara: Police on Friday arrested three assailants, who had gunned down a techie on the street of the town on Thursday.
The accused – Umakant Panda, 23, Sonu Nigam Pradhan, 32, and Tofan Pradhan, 24 – are all graduates and hail from Patkura of the district. They were arrested following electronic tracking of their mobile phones. Six mobile phones were recovered from their possession. Extortion was the motive of the crime, said Soumendra Priyadarshi, inspector general of police (central range).
While Pradhan had orchestrated the murder conspiracy, Panda and Sonu had executed the murder by gunning down the engineer at point blank. They had no history of crimes. However, their antecedents are being cross-checked to ascertain their role in other crimes. Their possible link with crime syndicates active in Paradip and Kendrapara areas is being looked into, the police said.
A motorbike and a country-made pistol, which was used to execute the crime, were recovered from them.
On Thursday, the criminals gunned down Debashis Sahu, 28, an electrical engineer, near Bada Mangala locality.
The criminals had demanded extortion sum. But Sahu, a native of Talcher town, had refused to give into their demand, police said.
