Puri suicide case: Deceased's wife, boyfriend arrested

Puri: The Puri Sadar police on Monday arrested Anita Pradhan and her 'boyfriend' Amaresh Swain in connection with Santanu Patra (Anita's husband) suicide case.

While Anita was arrested on the charge of instigating husband Santanu to commit suicide, Amaresh held for having 'illicit' relationship with Anita, according to police sources.

Police had detained Anita and Amaresh for the last two days.

It may be noted that Santanu had committed suicide after posting a video in the Facebook that showed his wife Anita's alleged extramarital affair with Amaresh.

Santanu had also alleged that she committed abortion before the marriage and her family members didn't reveal the fact to him before the marriage.

However, Anita defended herself saying that she was not involved in such an affair.

'Prior to tying the knot with my husband Santanu Patra, my marriage was fixed by my family with Amaresh Swain of Jagatsinghpur. So, he was suspecting me of having an extramarital affair with Amaresh. But I had no such relation with him after marriage,' she had reportedly claimed.

The police had begun investigation by registering an unnatural death case on the complaint of the deceased's mother.

Anita is working as a nurse at a private nursing home in Cuttack, said reports.
