A former junior artiste, S K Jyothy, 25, committed suicide at her flat in Erragadda late on Tuesday night.
According to Sanjeevareddy Nagar inspector of police, P Krishna Murthy, Jyothy married one S K Abdullah six years ago and the couple was residing at an apartment in Erragadda. She used to act as a character artiste in Telugu movies and stopped doing roles four years ago. She also reportedly got addicted to alcohol.
On Tuesday night, she had an argument with her husband as he returned home late. Later, he asked her to serve him food, but she did not respond. Then, he went out and returned after an hour and asked her to serve him food, the inspector said.
However, she did not respond again and went to her bedroom. She locked herself inside and committed suicide by hanging from a ceiling fan. After a few minutes, Abdullah knocked on the door, but there was no response. Then, he forcibly opened the door and found his wife’s body hanging from the ceiling fan. He immediately informed police.
A case was registered under section 174 (suspicious death) of the Indian Penal Code.
