Telugu actor kills self in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: Telugu character actor Ranganath (Tirumala Sundara Sriranganath) today allegedly committed suicide at his residence here by hanging himself, police said.

He was 66 and is survived by two daughters and son.

“His family members tell us that he was feeling lonely and was under some kind of depression after his wife passed away a few years ago. We found a word ‘destiny’ written in his kitchen. We are investigating the matter,” a police official said.

His maid came home this evening. However, as the door was closed sensing trouble, she called neighbours and his daughter who broke open the front door, police said.
