HYDERABAD: A 22-year-old private employee has been apprehended for allegedly abetting the suicide of his 20-year-old wife. Just before ending her life, the victim sent selfie videos to the accused and her family members informing them about her decision to commit suicide.
The victim, D Aishwarya, 20, committed suicide at a PG Accommodation on Road Number 3, Banjara Hills on March 29 night by hanging herself. Just before taking the extreme step, Aishwarya sent selfie videos to her husband, M Ashar, and her family members informing them about her decision to end her life, ACP, Banjara Hills, M Sudarshan said.

On February 20, 2020, they married at a temple in Hayathnagar without informing family members. “After the marriage, elders from both the families discussed about their future. As they were financially not independent, we took Aishwarya home. However, later Aishwarya got a job in a hospital at Sainikpuri in July 2020 and started staying in a hostel there,” Aishwarya’s father D Ram Kumar mentioned in the complaint to police.
During this period, Asher used to frequently meet Aishwarya.In January 2021, Aishwarya joined an infrastructure company as a business executive and started living with Asher at a room in Khairatabad. Recently, she moved to a PG accommodation to Banjara Hills after Asher returned to his parents house in Miyapur, Banjara Hills SI G Vasavi said.

Asher told her to wait for two years. Upset, Aishwarya made selfie videos saying she decided to end her life due to behaviour of Asher and sent them to his and her family members,” the ACP said.
