HYDERABAD: A case has been filed against Bahubali actor Madhu Prakash on Wednesday for his alleged involvement in the death of his wife.
“Tuesday evening Bharati had committed suicide by hanging herself to death at her residence. As soon as we received the information we reached at the spot and shifted the body to the hospital for Autopsy”, said police.
Police said Bharti’s father lodged a complaint alleging that Madhu Prakash used to harass his daughter for dowry and also use to beat her.
Madhu, who played a small role in SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali, married Bharati in 2015 and both were living together since then.
“Madhu Prakash used to harass Bharati for dowry and he had even beaten her up which abetted her to commit suicide,” Bharti’s father said in his complaint.
The police have registered the case under Section 304B (dowry death) of the Indian Penal Code.
“We have arrested the accused Madhu Prakash and he will be sent to judicial remand on Thursday,” the police said.
