Telugu TV anchor Nirosha, 23, commits suicide

Telugu television anchor K Nirosha allegedly committed suicide at her hostel room in Hyderabad’s Sindhi Colony under Ramgopalpet police station area, police said today. The 23-year-old woman who worked for Gemini Music channel was found dead in the wee hours of Wednesday, March 16.

Nirosha’s body has been shifted to Gandhi Hospital for post mortem. Plice have registered a case under Section 174 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

Police suspect that a tiff with her lover could have led her to take the extreme step.

Quoting police sources, a regional daily reported that Nirosha was on a video call with her boyfriend Ritwik when she took the extreme step. She allegedly had a fight with him and threatened to kill herself and then went on to hang herself with her dupatta, while the call was still ongoing. A helpless Ritwik who is based in Canada, immediately called Nirosha's relatives who reside in Jubilee Hills and asked them for help.

Police officials said they received a call around midnight from a relative asking them to save her. However, by the time they reached the spot, she was already dead and her phone was switched off.
