Telugu TV actress Naga Jhansi, 21, allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan on Tuesday night at her flat in Nagarjuna Nagar's Sairam Residency in Srinagar Colony under the Punjagutta police station limits.
She had been running a beauty parlour, too.
According to Punjagutta police Sub-Inspector Mohan Kumar, Jhansi was found hanging to the ceiling fan in her house by her brother Durga Prasad and the neighbours. Prasad had returned home on Tuesday night and knocked the doors, and when there was no response, broke open the door with help from the neighbours and found Jhansi hanging from the ceiling fan, and alerted the police immediately. The police rushed to the spot and seized the body and her cellphone. The body was sent to Gandhi Hospital for a post-mortem.
It was learnt that Naga Jhansi had been in love with one Surya of Vijayawada for some time. She allegedly spoke to her boyfriend on Whatsapp before taking the extreme step. Her brother said that she had been quite depressed for five days.
Jhansi was playing a lead role in Star Maa TV's serial Pavitra Bandham. However she stopped acting after she fell in love with Surya.
Jhansi was a native of Vadali village in Mudinepally mandal of Krishna district in Andhra Pradesh.
