The wife of famous TV artiste Chadalavada Ramesh, more commonly known as Potti Ramesh, reportedly hanged herself on Monday in her room at Gajuwaka near Visakhapatnam.

The family members of the victim, Tripurambika (22), who married Ramesh in December last year, have since alleged that harassment pushed her to take the extreme step.

Quoting sources, The New Indian Express reported that Ramesh’s sister found Tripurambika hanging from the ceiling fan in her room, and broke the door open with the help of family members, following which she was declared brought dead by doctors. 

Ramesh, was said to be in Hyderabad when the incident occurred.

Ramesh is a comedy artiste, known for his work in the popular Telugu TV show titled 'Jabardasth', and 'Extra Jabardasth', which consists of short comedy skits.

It is hosted by Rashmi Gautam, with Actors Nagendra Babu and Roja as the judges.

The show airs on ETV and Ramesh does most of his skits along with Bhaskar, with their team called the “Bullet Bhaskar” team.

The Deccan Chronicle reported that upon his return, Ramesh was was questioned by the police, and he also told journalists that there were no conflicts between him and his wife.

Tripurambika's mother Pushpalatha, however, termed it a murder. 

"My daughter’s in-laws and sister-in-law have been harassing her from day one. Mr Ramesh, who is a cousin of mine, is the sole breadwinner of their family. They were always trying to separate the couple out of fear that Ramesh may dump them if he has children,” Pushpalatha told DC.
