Balasore, October 19 (LocalWire): Mystery shrouds the death of two close friends in Balasore on Friday at village Sahupada under Sadar police station limits.
According to sources, 40-year old Trilochan Jena had committed suicide by hanging himself and family members found out about it at around 11 am.
After hearing about his death, Kartik Chandra Jena (34) of Sadarpal rushed to his house.
He returned home only after completion of the last rites of Trilochan and expressed his grief before his wife.
However, by evening Trilochan was also seen hanging from the window railing.
Although he was rushed to the district headquarter hospital, the doctors declared that he was brought dead.
While many locals find the two deaths as a coincidence, others have raised doubts on why two best friends would commit suicide on the same day, and both by hanging themselves.
