Senior Tollywood character actress Annapoorna's daughter Keerthi committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan in her mother's house.
Her husband, who was in another room of Annapoorna's house in Hyderabad at that time, woke up in the morning to discover the incident, and immediately informed Annapoorna, who in turn called the police.
Keerthi is reported to have been staying separately from her husband, a software engineer based in Benguluru, for a while. He was in Hyderabad at the time of the incident.
The Banjara Hills police registered a case and took up investigation. The police suspect that Keerthi was depressed as her daughter was born mute, and so resorted to the extreme step. They also suspect that she may have committed suicide due to ill health.
Annapoorna is a popular yesteryear Tollywood actress who enacted umpteen roles of mothers in Telugu films, mostly in the 1980s, involving many films starring Chiranjeevi.
