Daijiworld Media Network - Dharwad (SP)

Dharwad, Dec 14: Sameera Ramachandra Uchila (48) a hotelier from Uchila in the district, who owned Woodland Hotel, Hubballi, died late night on Wednesday December 12 under mysterious circumstances.

Lifeless body of Sameera was found lying near the generator room of Akruthi Garden Apartment in Bhavani Nagar, where he resided, on Thursday morning. The body, which appeared as if Sameera Uchila had collapsed to his knees, was seen by the security staff who then alerted the police.

Sameera Uchila came to the apartment in his car from his restaurant at around 1 am on Wednesday night, as per CCTV footage. It is unclear as to how he died thereafter. His body does not bear any injury marks except scratch marks on the right side of his face, which apparently caused when the face brushed against the wall. It is said that about Rs 60,000 cash was found in his pocket.

Sameera was of late busy with the running of 'Bougain Villa’ veg-non veg restaurant' near Sarvodaya Circle in the city. His wife had left on Wednesday to her parental home at Vijayanagara along with the children. Sameera's parents reportedly were on a visit to Bengaluru. Sameera's father was from Uchila and Sameer was born and brought up at Hubballi, it is learnt.

Sameera's wife, Ashwini, has expressed suspicion about the death of her husband. She accordingly filed complaint in Ashok Nagar police station. The police, who have registered case of suspicious death, are probing the case.
