Supporting actor kills self at Tiruvottiyur
A 23-year-old woman who has acted in supporting roles in films was found hanging in her rented house in Tiruvottiyur.
The deceased, P Padmaja, was staying alone in the house in Kaladipet for the past few months after being separated from her husband Pawan due to differences. He had left to his hometown in Andhra Pradesh, and their two-year-old son is being raised at a relative’s house, said the police.
As Padmaja did not step out on Sunday morning, the house owner, S Kasinathan, grew suspicious and alerted the Tiruvottiyur police. When the house was broken open in the presence of police, Padmaja was found hanging from the ceiling fan. Her body was removed and sent to Government Stanley Medical College Hospital for autopsy.
Preliminary inquiries revealed that Padmaja broke down over her financial status during a video call to her sister on Saturday night. A case has been registered and an inquiry by Revenue Divisional Official (RDO) has been initiated as she had gotten married only three years ago.
