Sai Durga Mounika committed suicide at her home in Dundigal. As per her family, she was depressed due to family issues that led her to take this extreme step. Reportedly, she committed suicide after her mother cautioned her over an extreme use of smartphones and spending time on social media.
Police said Sai Durga was staying at her maternal uncle’s house with her mother and brother in Suraram. Her father left them a decade ago. She had an argument with her mother over a gold chain and a ring on Wednesday afternoon. After that she hanged herself to death when her kins were out. When her family members returned they found her hanging and rushed her to a nearby hospital. But she was declared brought dead.
