Jyoti Khadka aka Jeshika was found dead at her rented room in Jhonchhe this morning (June 12).
Her body was found hanging from a shawl tied to the ceiling of her room when a team of police investigators reached the scene at around 7:30 am.
Jyoti Khadka started her career at the age of 14 and did a small role in televison comedy show "Tite Kareli". She was also involved in a sex scandal along with the singer Prakash Ojha.
Prakash Ojha had to serve 2 years in Sunsari Jail for sexual exploitation of girls. It is then after Jyoti Khadka changed her name to Jeshika.
According to police, she had talked to filmmaker Baldeep Rai(43), said to be her boyfriend, late last night. Investigators believe that she was drunk and was involved in a heated argument with her boyfriend. Rai and Khadka were supposed to get married but seems like Rai brought up her past sex scandal issues and things got out of proportion.
However Kathmandu Police Chief SSP Jaya Bahadur Chand had declared that there is no foul play involved and its a pure suicide case. The body has been sent to TU Teaching Hospital for post-mortem.
Jessica had played lead roles in several movies , including Mero Maya Timilai, Jungle Love, Gahirahi, and Lucky Seven.
Its sad that we have lost such a talent in Nepali movie industry. May her soul rest in peace.
