Hotel employee found hanging, family suspects foulplay


Sensation prevailed at Hotel Rituraj located at Machkhowa in Guwahati after an employee was found hanging inside one of the hotel rooms.

Hemen Pathak, hailing from Dimu under Kamrup district, was found hanging in room number 6 of the hotel today (Aug 13). Hotel authorities said Hemen, who had been working in the hotel for the past eight years, probably committed suicide.

His family members and friends, however, suspect foulplay, and alleged that Hemen could never take such a step and that he was murdered.

Bharalumukh Police, meanwhile, have begun investigations and have sent the body for post-mortem.

The family of the deceased also expressed unhappiness with police for sending the body even before their arrival.
