The deceased, Asish Ranjan Samal (52), was working as the GM of the RBI branch in Guwahati, Assam.
According to sources, Samal had come to his native village of Naraharipur to meet his mother on Thursday. Then he proceeded to Bhubaneswar to meet his wife, who is a doctor at KIIMS, and his son, a Plus Two student. Later, Samal went to Chandikhol and booked a room in his name at the hotel.
