Police found the putrefied body of the actress, who also hosted television shows and acted in teleserials, after they broke open her flat. The police resorted to the action after neighbours complained of a foul smell emanating from her flat.
Media reports cited police officers as saying that there was a slash mark on the wrist of the 29-year-old actress who was originally from Coimbatore. She had been staying in her flat in Maduravoyil alone for a year.
The body of the actress was sent to the Kilpauk Government Medical College and Hospital for a postmortem.
