Telugu TV actress Sravani has been found hanging from the ceiling in the bathroom at her residence in Madhuranagar, Hyderabad. Her body has been taken to Osmania hospital for postmortem.
Sources said that Sravani has been harassed by Devaraj, and she committed suicide due to that reason. Her family alleged that she took her life due to harassment by her former boyfriend Devaraj Reddy. Police reported that the family had cautioned her for moving around with him even after filing a case against him a few months ago.
The police officer said that Devaraj was arrested in June on a complaint by Sravani that he was harassing her to marry him.
S.R. Nagar Circle Inspector Narasimha Reddy said that their preliminary investigations say that she went to her room and hanged herself after an argument with her mother and brother over the issue Tuesday night.
Police have 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.
