As per media reports, the TV star hanged herself at her friend's place in Kachohalli near Madanayakanahalli in Nelamangala taluk in Bengaluru on Tuesday. The 24-year-old was married to a businessman named Umesh and stayed with him in Harohalli on Kanakapura Road (Mysore).
According to a New Indian Express report, "Police said early on Tuesday when Shruthi had gone to her friend Shrikanth's house for a party. The two had been friends for years. At the party, Shruthi reportedly had a quarrel with Shrikanth over some issue. Upset, she locked herself up in a room where she hung herself from the ceiling.
Shrikanth repeatedly knocked on the door. When there was no response, he, along with some his friends, broke open the door and found the body."
Shruthi's husband has filed a case against her friend Shrikanth on charges of abetting TV actor's suicide.
The police has sent Shruthi's body for autopsy and arrested Shrikanth.
Shruthi featured in Kannada TV serial 'Avanu Matthu Shravani'.
