A senior official of the Vizag Steel Plant, who was on a personal visit to Bhubaneswar, was found dead under mysterious circumstances on Monday.
The body of I Surya Prasad Rao, who worked as AGM (Finance) at Vizag Steel Plant was found in VSS Nagar area of Bhubaneswar.
Police said the deceased’s identity was known from an air ticket recovered from his pocket and the injury marks on his body point to possible murder.
Bhubaneswar DCP Satyabrata Bhoi said Rao arrived from Vizag Sunday and checked into a hotel here.
“He spoke to his son in Vizag at 10.42 pm. The incident must have happened after that. We suspect it to be a case of professional rivalry and have registered an unnatural death case,” he said.
