Yediyurappa's granddaughter Soundarya final rites performed at farm house
Bengaluru, Jan 28: The final rites of Soundarya, granddaughter of former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, was performed at their Abbigere farmhouse in Bengaluru on Friday evening.
Dr Soundarya VY was found hanging at her city residence on Friday, with the police suspecting it to be a case of suicide.
Soundarya, daughter of the BJP leader's second daughter Padmavathi, was married to Dr Neeraj S, who works in the same hospital where she was employed, since 2018, police said. On Friday morning, Neeraj left for duty while she was home at their Vasant Nagar residence here.
The matter came to light when the maid came to the house and knocked on the door repeatedly but in vain. She informed Dr Neeraj, who too called on his wife's phone but there was no response, the police said, adding, the door was then opened by force.
The body was later shifted to the Bowring Hospital where the post-mortem was performed. Learning about the incident, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, some ministers and senior BJP functionaries rushed to Yediyurappa's house to console the bereaved family members, BJP sources said.
Opposition leaders like Siddaramiah and DK Shivakumar have also offered condolence over the demise.
