Cine actress Bhargavi found murdered

Choreographer claiming to be her husband also found dead


Upcoming actress Bhargavi of 'Ashta Chemma' fame was found murdered at her residence in Sri Venkateswara Colony in Banjara Hills on Tuesday. A choreographer K Praveen Kumar said to be her husband was also found dead beside her. Police suspect that Praveen Kumar might have killed her before ending his life. Police suspect that the incident might have occurred late last night. There were seven injuries on Bhargavi's body and Praveen Kumar lay beside her with his head on her lap. A soft drink bottle and a blood stained knife were also found in the room.

According to sources, the police suspect the drink might have been laced with cyanide. However, they did not found any signs of a scuffle in the house. Neighbors too stated that they had not heard any noise late last night. The West Zone DCP C Ravi Varma said that Praveen Kumar might have tricked Bhargavi into consuming the poisonous drink and later stabbed her in a fit of rage. He may have consumed the toxic portion to end his life. However, the police are yet to ascertain the exact cause of their deaths which would be established only after post-mortem. Sources reveal that Praveen Kumar was running one Saibaba Orchestra in Hyderabad and Bhargavi who belongs to Guntur joined his troupe as a dancer. Praveen Kumar's brother Kiran Kumar said that Praveen Kumar had two wives and each of them had one child. He denied the knowledge of marriage of Bhargavi.

In the suicide note left behind, Praveen Kumar stated that he developed intimacy with Bhargavi and married her on December 14, 2006 secretly. While Praveen Kumar continued his career as a lead singer of his orchestra, Bhargavi was going places bagging roles in serials and films. With Bhargavi hogging the limelight with the movie, 'Ashta Chemma' and getting busy, he reportedly felt that she was avoiding him at the behest of her mother. It is reveled that Bhargavi's mother did not allow him to meet her for more than a month continuously. He seems to have visited her yesterday and killed her, said a police officer.
