Dhenkanal: A youth’s body was found hanging on the premises of Ugreswar Mahadev Temple in Chittalpur. The deceased has been identified as Niranjan Sahu of Nuapatna village under Rasol PS.
According to reports, Niranjan was on a rigorous penance of 21 days in the temple. He lived there without any food and water to get a boon from Lord Shiva. He was married since 2 years but did not have any children.
It is suspected that the man got disillusioned that his penance was unsuccessful and could have taken this extreme step.
However, the actual reason and cause of his death is yet to be ascertained.
