On Wednesday, the couple again fought on the issue. Sushmitha took Vijay to task on Wednesday morning for giving mobile phone to the children. The two had a major confrontation on the issue. Frustrated by this routine, Vijay announced that he would be returning to Mumbai. He began to stuff his bag with his clothes for the purpose. Sushmitha who apparently grew angry, went into a room and locked herself in that room. Even though the family members repeatedly knocked at the door, she did not open it.
Later, the people broke the window glasses and peeped in. They found that Sushmitha had hanged herself from the ceiling fan with the help of a nylon rope. She was immediately brought down and rushed to the government hospital at Kundapur where she was admitted. She was then taken to Manipal hospital. However, without showing signs of recovery, Sushmitha breathed her last on Thursday July 29 morning, a complaint filed with the Byndoor police station stated.
