A 30-year-old dentist who was practising along with her husband at Saidapet was found dead at her residence at Ram Nagar in South Madippakkam under suspicious circumstances, here on Friday night.

Police said Yogita(30), a native of Tanjore, was ailing from multiple health issues including obesity, seizures, and breathing discomfort. On Friday night, her husband Sundaresan found her lying near the bed. Thinking that she had collapsed, he moved her to a private hospital where the doctors declared her dead on arrival and intimated Madippakkam Police.

Police moved her body to Chrompet Government Hospital for post-mortem which was done on her on Saturday and the body was handed over to the family later in the day. Yogita fell in love with Sundaresan who was also a dentist and had been practising at their own clinic in Joans Road in West Saidapet since 2004. They had closed their clinic ahead of Pongal and were planning to reopen on Saturday. She was also under medication for her ailments. The couple doesn’t have any children in eight years of their marriage.

Doctors told cops that the deceased could have had seizures which led to her death. “We have registered a case of unnatural death and are investigating. It is too premature to speculate the cause of death until the post-mortem reports are out. There were no external injuries,” a senior police official said.

Meanwhile, another dentist aged 27 in Salem committed suicide on Friday.

Police said, Ganesan, a resident and a dentist of Emerald Garden near Narasothipatti, was running a clinic in an area near Vincent. On Friday afternoon, he jumped off a private building near Five Roads.

Pedestrians, who spotted the injured dentist, saved and rushed him to Salem government hospital.

But, he died at the hospital without responding to treatment on Friday night.

Suramangalm police have registered a case in this regard and were holding inquiries with several persons known to the doctor to find out the reason for the suicide.

Investigations revealed that Ganesan was in deep mental agony as he could not excel in his profession. This could have forced the dentist to take the extreme step, police said.

Student Drowned

A class VIII boy was drowned in the waters of a stone quarry near Pazhavanthangal while he was swimming along with three of his friends on Friday.

The Vignesh, son of Sekar, was swimming in the water in the quarry located at Burma Colony.

On noticing that Vignesh did not emerge out  of the water for long, his friends alerted his parents who were residing at Kovilambakkam. Even after hours of struggle, the fire fighters were unable to retrieve the body on Friday. On Saturday morning, the body was fished out by the firefighters.

The body was handed over to the family after autopsy.
