Hyderabad: The Punjagutta police questioned Surya Teja for the second day in connection with the alleged suicide of Telugu television actor N Jhansi.

Surya had turned up at the police station on Saturday after the family of the actor had alleged he was responsible for Jhansi’s death. The police who had searched the house of the actor on Saturday found a dairy in the house and questioned Surya based on it. The actor had reportedly presented some gifts to Surya.

Punjagutta ACP Vijay Kumar said the probe into the case was going on. He said Surya and Jhansi were into relationship. Suvvada Annapurana, mother of the actor, had earlier said Jhansi stopped acting in serial after Surya asked her to do so.

Surya reportedly told the police that he had, in fact, told Jhansi that he would not marry her as he was already planning to marry another woman. The woman had introduced Jhansi to Surya initially.

It is learnt, during questioning, Surya had reportedly named a photographer who allegedly assured to arrange a role in cinema for Jhansi but later failed to do. He said because of it, Jhansi could have slipped into depression and ended her life. Police are probing this angle too.
