The wife of a techie, who had recently returned from the United States, killed herself in her flat in Puppalaguda in Hyderabad, police said on Friday.
Rashmi Sharma (39) hanged herself in the apartment in Alkapur colony on Thursday evening when her husband Sanjiv Sharma and their two sons had gone out.
The family, hailing from Uttar Pradesh, had come to Hyderabad a month ago after their return from the US.
Sanjiv Sharma's visa had expired and he had secured a job at an IT company in Hyderabad.
On Thursday, when Sanjiv along with his two sons had gone out for repair of their laptop, Rashmi hanged herself from the ceiling fan, a police official said.
Police said the investigation was on to know the reason for Rashmi's extreme step.
Local media reports suggested that Rashmi was unhappy, as Sanjiv's visa had expired.
Police said they were waiting for the arrival of Rashmi's other family members.
This death in Puppalaguda comes after popular television actor Pradeep Kumar killed himself at his residence, in the same colony.
29-year-old Pradeep hanged himself at around 4am on Wednesday, after a minor argument with his wife, TV artiste Pavani Reddy.
Pradeep is known for having worked in several Telugu serials, including Saptha Matrika, besides a few movies.
