Popular Tamil television actor Sai Prashanth has allegedly committed suicide at his residence here on Sunday, police said. Prashanth’s body has been taken to Kilpauk Medical College Hospital for post-mortem.

After divorcing his first wife, Prashanth re-married three months ago.

Known for working in serials such as “Annamalai”, “Selvi” and “Arasi”, he had also starred in a few Tamil films such as “Neram”, “Thegidi” and “Vadacurry”.

According to police sources, the actor’s father Subash alerted neighbours after Sai Prasanth did not answer calls. The neighbours found the door locked and informed the police. Sai Prasanth is suspected to have committed suicide by consuming poison.
