Keonjhar: The mysterious death of Dr Subhashree Kar in Odisha’s Keonjhar district took a new turn on Monday as it came to light that she had filed a police complaint against another doctor accusing him of sexually exploiting her.

Subhashree, who was working as a doctor at Urban PHC in Baneikala of Joda area in the district, was found dead on the bed in her room on the hospital premises on Sunday.

According to the employees of the PHC, Dr Kar herself had made all arrangements for New Year eve celebration with them. “She cooked different items on her own. She also joined us in singing and dancing during the celebration till late night and went to sleep in her room at around 1.30 am,” said one of the employees.

Next morning when her cook came to the house and knocked on the door of her room, the doctor did not open it. As she informed other employees of the PHC, one of them called her on her cellphone. But she did not respond. After repeated knockings and calls, as the doctor did not open the door, they informed the police.

A team from Joda police station came to the house in the evening and broke open the door of the room. They found Dr Kar lying on the bed. They rushed her to Tata Steel hospital where she was declared brought dead.

The police have seized the doctor’s mobile phone, medicines and some document from the room.

Dr Kar had lodged an FIR at Joda police station on December 20 last year with complaint against Dr Dibyaranjan Majhi working in the hospital of a private mine at Rugudi. Dr Kar, in her complaint, stated that Dr Majhi had relationship with her for the last 6 years.
