Bengaluru: Day after the death of former chief minister B S Yediyurappa’s granddaughter, Dr. Soundarya due to suicide, police have recorded a statement of her husband Dr. Neeraj.


In his statement, Dr. Neeraj said that the couple shared a good bonding, there was no crisis between them and he is not able to understand what pushed Soundarya to the verge of committing suicide, IANS reported quoting police sources on Sunday, January 30.

Dr. Neeraj has further stated that the incident has shocked him and he is not able to understand what led her to commit suicide. After the birth of the child, Soundarya spent most of the time at her parents’ place and visited the flat occasionally, police said.

“As always, I expected Soundarya to wake up late in the morning, so I started for work early in the morning at the regular time. When she came to the flat on Thursday night she seemed to be fine,” claimed Neeraj, police sources said.

Soundarya committed suicide by hanging from a ceiling fan in her flat leaving behind her 9-month-old male baby. Dr. Neeraj has said that he led a cordial life with Soundarya. He claimed that they did not quarrel or had any difference of opinion among themselves.


After recording the statement of Dr. Neeraj, the High Ground police who are investigating the case conducted a spot inspection in the flat where Soundarya committed suicide in the presence of Neeraj and family members. The police have also recorded the statements of Soundarya’s mother and maids, according to sources.

Soundarya wanted to serve the poor and chose to work at the Bowring hospital, which is run by the government. Meanwhile, Bengaluru Police Commissioner Kamal Pant met Yediyurappa at his residence and spoke to him for about 20 minutes. Further investigation is on.
