“After seeing her hanging, they forcibly opened the door and brought her down and shifted her to a nearby hospital where she was declared dead,” Goud said.

“The immediate reason for her to take the extreme step was learning about her close friend Madhavi’s suicide.

“Madhavi, a woman police constable attached to Vemulapally police station in Nalgonda district committed suicide yesterday and Naveena got the news late last evening,” the police official said.

“She got upset after hearing the news about the death of her close friend,” he said.

A family member of Naveena said “The only reason (for Naveena to resort to the extreme step was) because Madhavi had committed suicide and that’s why she also ended her life. Both were close friends since childhood.”
