Hyderabad: A case was filed against Baahubali actor Madhu Prakash for his alleged involvement in the death of his wife, police said on Thursday.
“Bharati (Prakash’s wife) hanged herself at her home on Tuesday. As soon as we received information, we reached the spot and sent the body for autopsy,” NDTV quoted a police officer as saying.
Police said Bharati’s father filed a complaint on Wednesday. “Prakash used to harass Bharati for dowry and he had even beaten her up, which abetted her to commit suicide,” the father said in his complaint.
Prakash, who played a small role in SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali, married Bharati in 2015.
A case has been filed for alleged dowry death. “We have arrested Madhu Prakash and he will be sent to judicial remand on Thursday,” a police officer said.
