Another Indian actress commits suicide
Telugu TV actress Sravani, who was currently being seen in the serial Manasu Mamata, was found hanging from the ceiling in the bathroom at her residence in Madhuranagar, Hyderabad. The body was later shifted to Osmania hospital for postmortem.
Devaraj is said to have harassed Sravani and she committed suicide out of that resentment.
Reportedly, Sravani, who was living on the second floor of H56 block in Mathura Nagar under Essar Nagar PS, Hyderabad, died by suicide between 9-10 pm. The body was shifted to Osmania Hospital for postmortem.
While the family alleged that she resorted to the extreme step due to harassment by her former boyfriend Devaraj Reddy, the police said the family had admonished her for moving around with him even after lodging a police case against him a few months ago.
S.R. Nagar Circle Inspector Narasimha Reddy said their preliminary investigations revealed that the family members had pulled up Sravani for again moving around with Devaraj and after an argument with her mother and brother over the issue late Tuesday night, she went to her room and hanged herself.
Police sent a team to Andhra Pradesh's Kakinada town to arrest Devaraj. "Since Sravani's family is making an allegation, we will arrest and question him," the Circle Inspector added. The police officer said Devaraj was arrested on a complaint by Sravani in June that he was pestering her to marry him.
