We report 125Te NMR studies on a newly discovered heavy fermion superconductor UTe2. Using a single crystal, we have measured the 125Te NMR Knight shift K and spin-lattice relaxation rate 1=T1 for fields along the three orthorhombic crystal axes. The data confirm a moderate Ising anisotropy for both the static (K) and dynamical susceptibilities (1=T1) in the paramagnetic state above about 20 K. Around 20 K, however, we have observed a sudden loss of NMR spin-echo signal due to sudden enhancement of the NMR spin-spin relaxation rate 1=T2, when the field is applied along the easy axis of magnetization (= a-axis). This behavior suggests the development of longitudinal magnetic fluctuations along the a-axis at very low frequencies below 20 K.
