Hyderabad: A young doctor committed suicide at Miryalaguda in Telangana’s Nalgonda district on 13 May allegedly over family disputes. Swetha Bandaru, a dentist, hanged herself at her home, the police said.
Swetha’s husband Kumar Bandaru is also a doctor and works at the Government Hospital in Miryalaguda town. The couple had been married for around six years and lived at the Ahalya apartment in the town’s Reddy colony. While Kumar was busy with COVID-19 duties at the hospital, Swetha was mostly home due to the lockdown restrictions.
On Wednesday, Kumar left for the hospital, and Swetha was home alone. Around noon, Kumar called her phone but there was no response. He called repeatedly and when she didn’t answer any of his calls, he asked a family friend to check on her. They found her hanging from the ceiling at home.
The Miryalaguda police have registered a case and started an investigation. The cops said it looks like a case of suicide but they are probing all angles.
