Shillong: Neeru Rai, a 34-year-old resident of Shillong, Meghalaya, was found dead in a room at Mahavir Lodge in Mawlonghat in Shillong.
According to officials, Neeru had been living in the lodge for the past month after eloping with one Sanjay Biswas.
Speaking to EastMojo, the lodge manager said, ‘I went around 12:30 pm to ask for food, but her husband said she was sleeping and to come back later. I went back at 2:30pm, and I saw she was still under the quilt, sound asleep, so I insisted Mr Sanjay to wake her up. We found her unconscious, and I immediately ran to call the police.’
