Her body was found hanging from a ceiling fan of her room. Her sister Riya Khanna first noticed her body, informed police sources.
Saiyyam, who was a struggling actress, had worked in Bollywood films such as 'The Haunted House'. Her another film 'The Last Horror' was scheduled to be released soon.
According to her sister's statement, the actress had asked Riya not to disturb Saiyyam as she was taking rest in her room. The actress also had expressed her love for her sister and family, informed the sources.
Riya had gone to market and after returning home, she did not disturb Saiyyam as she thought her sister was sleeping. However, when she entered her room, she found Saiyyam hanging from the ceiling fan.
Sister suspected that actress's boyfriend might have triggered incident
According to Riya's statement, the actress was allegedly in a relationship with a man who reportedly was the son of a famous actor.
Riya accused Saiyyam's boyfriend of ignoring her sister. In the suicide note, the actress, however, did not blame anyone for her death.
Riya claimed that Saiyyam's boyfriend might have triggered the incident. She won't file a police case though, as she feels she can't fight the system, media reports claimed. The last call which Saiyyam made from her phone was to her boyfriend, added the reports.
Earlier another Bollywood actress Jiah Khan had committed suicide. However, later her mother accused her boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi, son of actor Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, of killing her.
