According to sources, Ramesh’s sister found Tripurambika hanging from a ceiling fan in her room and alerted the family members, who broke the door open. She was rushed to a nearby hospital where the doctors declared her brought dead. ‘Potti’ Ramesh, who was in Hyderabad for a shoot, came to know of it and rushed to Vizag.
However, parents of Tripurambika alleged that her in-laws had been harassing her since marriage. A case has been registered against the family of Ramesh under Section 304 B of the IPC. The body has been shifted to King George Hospital for post-mortem.
