Dhenkanal: In a bizarre incident, a man committed suicide on the premises of a temple in Chittalpur under Rasol police limits in the district yesterday.
One Niranjan Sahu ended his life by hanging himself on the premises of Shiv temple after his wish for a child was not fulfilled.
Sahu, who was married for the last two years, had been offering prayer to get a child by prostrating himself before the idols for the last 21 consecutive days. Annoyed over for not getting any results of his prayer, he took the drastic step yesterday by hanging himself inside the Shiv temple.
Police have started an investigation into the matter by sending the body to the hospital for postmortem.
A pall of gloom descended on the area following Sahu’s suicide.
