BENGALURU: Jayashree Ramaiah, a small-time actress and contestant in the Big Boss Kannada version, died by suicide in Bengaluru in the wee hours of Monday. She had attempted suicide a few months ago after releasing a video on social media, stating that she was facing several problems.

A senior police officer said that Jayashree, a contestant in Bigg Boss Kannada season-3, was being treated at Sandhya Kirana Ashram in Bengaluru, where she was found hanging. She was reportedly unhappy about the lack of opportunities and had complained about it to her friends and it led her to fall into depression.

Early in the morning, her parents tried to contact her over phone but there was no response. Then they contacted the Ashram. The staff went to her room and found her hanging and alerted Madanayakanahalli police. A case of unnatural death has been registered and further investigations are on.
