According to the Superintendent of Police, Puri, Sarthak Sarangi, informed Indian Express, “Since there was a deep injury on the back of her head, it is suspected that Sujata may have been hit with a hard object. It seems the motive was not loot and further investigation into the matter is underway.”
When Dr Sahu was inquired on the matter, if he suspects anyone for the said incident, he informed that few days back he had a quarrel with a nurse in the hospital. “I suspect that the nurse and her husband have murdered my wife,” Dr Sahu told Orissapost.
When people in the locality were asked on the issue, one of them said that after Dr Sahu and their son left home, two electricians arrived at around 9:30 am at their house to address the issue of electricity. Sources added that the two electricians left the house 10 minutes after Dr Sahu left for the office, reports Orissapost.
