Bhubaneswar: Mystery shrouded the death of R. Jaybalan, an assistant professor of life sciences department in National Institute of Technology (NIT), Rourkela and his wife Malvi Kesavan whose bodies were recovered on Saturday from their official quarters on the premises of the institute.

Finding the door of the house locked from inside since last two days, the neighbours informed the security chief who immediately called police.

The cops then rushed to the spot and recovered the bodies after breaking open the door.

Reports said the police has started preliminary investigation. Senior police officials, including additional superintendent of police (SP), additional SP and City deputy superintendent of police (DSP) along with scientific experts visited the quarters of the couple in presence of the local magistrate launched the probe into the incident.

“The security in-charge here informed us as the doors were closed from inside for the last two days. We have launched a probe,” a senior police officer said.

As investigation is in the preliminary stage, it will be premature to come to any perspective right now. We will look into all minute details,” said a senior police official.

Sources said the couple had tied the knot nine years back while there were no signs of family feud, whatsoever. Reportedly, police informed their parents who stay in Tamil Nadu.

Reports further claimed that the couple might have committed suicide as a four-page suicide note was recovered from the room of their house. However, there was no official confirmation from the side of the police on the purported suicide note.
