Former Andhra Pradesh CM NTR's daughter Uma Maheswari found dead

Citing preliminary findings, police said ill-health and depression were suspected to be the reasons for her allegedly taking the extreme step.

Uma Maheswari, the 57-year-old daughter of legendary Telugu actor, TDP founder and ex-Chief Minister N T Rama Rao (NTR), allegedly died by suicide at her residence in Hyderabad on Monday, police said.

Citing preliminary findings, police said ill-health and depression were suspected to be the reasons for her allegedly taking the extreme step.

However, the observations were not conclusive, they said.

A police official told PTI that Uma Maheswari's younger daughter, son-in-law and a woman relative broke open the door of the bedroom which was bolted from inside after failing to get a response from her.

They found her hanging from the ceiling fan, he said.

Her younger daughter, who resides in the city, came to her home on Sunday along with her husband.
