Popular Telugu actor Vijay Sai found dead, suicide suspected
Popular Tollywood comedian Vijay Sai was found hanging in his Jubilee Hills apartment in Hyderabad this morning. Suicide is suspected. Reports say the actor took the step as he wasn't finding work in films. However, police are investigating other angles too for the "suspicious death". The actor was most known for his work in the movies 'Bommarillu' and 'Ammayilu Abbayilu'.
But why might have he killed himself?
Police haven't confirmed yet it's a suicide, but are probing if he had any family problems. There are reports he was being treated for depression. IB Times reports he didn't have many offers in the last few years and was struggling with financial difficulties. An investigating officer said there was a case against him under Section 498A (cruelty by husband or his relatives).
