Tamil actress Yashika hangs herself after Whatsapp-ing suicide note to mom

Tamil actor Yashika, born Mary Sheela Jebarani, was found dead in her house in GKM Colony, Peravallur, on Wednesday. The 21-year-old actor from Tiruppur, who has done a few TV serials and a small role in actor Vimal’s movie ‘Mannar Vagaiyara’  was reportedly living-in with her partner Aravind alias Mohan Babu, in a rented house.

According to reports, Yashika had left a WhatsApp message to her mother accusing her partner of not marrying her and also torturing her. In the message, Yashika had reportedly asked her mother to ensure that Mohan is severely punished.

Yashika had moved in with Mohan, a worker at a cellphone service firm, just four months ago. Earlier, she used to stay in a hostel in Vadapalani. The couple allegedly got into a fight which blew up and led to Mohan leaving the house.

An officer from K5 Peravallur police station said, “We have registered a case and are on the lookout for Mohan Babu. Only once we find him we can get the real reason for the actor’s death. The body has been sent for post-mortem and we are awaiting the report.”
