HYDERABAD: Telugu serial actress K Sravani, known for her roles in serials such as Mouna Raagam and Manasu Mamatha, died by suicide on Tuesday night.
Sravani's parents have alleged that her boyfriend, Devaraj, was harassing her and this led her to take the extreme step.
She was a resident of Madhuranagar, under the SR Nagar police limits and was living with Devaraj.
According to police, Shravani had met Devaraj on Tiktok a few months ago and they bonded well.

In the early hours of Wednesday, her neighbours informed the police.
A complaint is lodged with the police in connection with the case.
