A Telugu television news anchor allegedly committed suicide on Sunday by jumping from the fifth floor of her house in Hyderabad’s Moosapet, reports said. Though investigations are still going on, the news journalist, identified as Radhika Reddy, 36, is believed to have been suffering from depression.
Kukatpally Police Station Sub-Inspector, Majid, told ANI that the anchor committed suicide shortly after coming back from work. “She died on the spot from head injury, leg fracture, and multiple blunt injuries,” he was quoted as saying.
She came home from work and straight walked up to the terrace of her residence and jumped off, the police said.
She was married around 12 years ago and had two children, but apparently due to some family dispute with her husband she was not staying with him, the police said adding based on preliminary investigation it was found that due to some family issues she was under depression and it was one of the reasons for her to resort to the extreme step.
Police ruled out any foul play behind the incident.
A case was registered and the woman’s body was shifted to a state-run hospital and a post–mortem will be conducted today, they said.
