The area residents say an impartial investigation should be conducted on the death of the postmistress of the Kurundugahahathakma sub-post office.

They urge the police to investigate whether the death was a suicide or a murder. The 49-year-old postmistress, died of burn injuries last morning (29).

So far police suspect that she must have committed suicide after consuming poison. The initial post mortem inquiry has found residuals of poison in her.

Thereafter, samples were referred to the Government Analyst to conduct further investigations. Police recovered a bottle of poison inside the sub-post office along with an empty kerosene lamp.

However, the area residents pointed out that the padlocks of the main door and the safe of the sub-post office were found to be forced open. They say it is suspicious.
