"The reason for the death of my daughter is not known. She had spoken to her mother Bhagyalakshmi on Thursday, but she didn't talk about any problems," said a wailing father, Vemula Kanaka Raju.
Meanwhile, the incident has shocked the people of Korutla town where Sushma's maternal uncles live. A relative, who also got a call from the US on Friday, debunked the suicide story and termed it as a murder. "There was no reason for Sushma to commit suicide. It could be a murder," he added.
Sources said Sushma moved to the US in August 2007 after her marriage to Suresh in April last year. Suresh belongs to Sultanabad mandal in Karimnagar district.
