CHENNAI: TV serial actor Priyanka (32), who became famous in a serial called ‘Vamsam’, allegedly killed herself at her residence in Valasaravakkam early on Wednesday. Priyanka was married to a basketball coach Arun Bala from Pudukottai four years ago. She had acted in many TV serials and was famous for playing the role of sister of a leading character. She played her role as ‘Jothika’ and ‘Vamsam’ serial went on from 2013 to 2017.

Police said Priyanka’s maid who reached the house saw the milk and newspaper not picked and the door locked from inside. She opened the window of the actor’s room only to see  Priyanka hanging from the ceiling. Preliminary investigation revealed that she and Arun Bala do not have children and there seemed to be problems in the family over this. A few weeks ago Arun left Priyanka in the city and returned to his native place.

The police said though the reason for the suicide could be due to depression, the exact reason will be known only after investigation. The body was removed to KMC Hospital and her parents in Madurai were informed.
