Bengaluru: Former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa’s 30-year-old granddaughter Soundarya Neeraj was found hanging at her residence in Bengaluru on Friday.
Soundarya, a doctor at MS Ramaiah Hospital, was the daughter of Yediyurappa’s daughter Padma.
She was married to Dr Neeraj S in 2018 and gave birth to a girl last year.
Soundarya is suspected to have died by suicide. The matter came to light when no one opened the door for the maid. The latter called Dr Neeraj who had left early for duty that day.
When all attempts to contact her failed, the door was opened forcibly.
Soundarya’s body was found hanging inside. No suicide note was found in the house.
The post-mortem was being conducted at Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital.
The police have registered a case of accidental death and have started investigation.
