Police rush in time, talk actor out of suicide attempt
Some timely intervention by the Jnanabharathi police foiled a suicide attempt by a small-time actor on Thursday.

According to the police, Shruthi Raj had called them up, saying she had decided to end her life due to “mental harassment” by film financier Srinivas. She further informed that she would consume poison.

The police rushed to her place and managed to talk her out of taking the extreme step.

Shruthi Raj and Srinivas were friends and dating each other. He then proposed to her, and she agreed.

Meanwhile, she took loans from him but later refused to marry him which led to the rift between the two. The actor, however, refuted the suggestion that she had carried out any financial transaction with him.

On the contrary, she claimed that Srinivas targeted her because she was dalit. She also accused him of abusing her. The actor has sought action against the financier. The police said they were still investigating the matter.
