Bengaluru, Oct 1: Madappa, father of deceased Kannada actress Soujanya, has lodged a complaint against a Telugu actor Vivek of harassing her which allegedly forced her to commit suicide. The actress was found dead at her apartment in Bengaluru Thursday.

In the complaint lodged Thursday with Kumbolgod police, Madappa suspected that Vivek was mentally torturing and harassing Soujanya.

He also appealed to the police to seek details from Mahesh who is assistant to Soujanya to throw light on Vivek.

"Mahesh is Soujanya's friend. The police should ascertain from him the details about the Telugu actor. Vivek had once come to my house. He had also told my wife that he wants to marry my daughter," he told reporters.

"I suspect Vivek came to the apartment and harassed my daughter, which must have forced her to take the extreme step. Her mobile and money is missing," Madappa said.

Before hanging herself from a ceiling fan, Soujanya had left a death note, which had not blamed anyone.

Soujanya had mentioned that she was suffering from some health issues and was undergoing treatment, but to no avail.

Madappa, however, denied Soujanya had any health issues. "My daughter did not have any health issues. Her health was good," Madappa said.

Vivek, on the other hand, denied all the allegations leveled by Madappa and said he is very as much curious as Soujanya's father to know the reason for Soujanya committing suicide.

He said he did not have any living-in relationship with Soujanya, but had a bond through a common friend. "She was very decent and too obedient," he said.

Vivek also denied having made any proposal to marry Soujanya.

The deceased actress' post-mortem will be completed today and her body taken to her native village.

Mumbai, Oct 22: Despite the uproar over Ananya Panday's grilling by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), official sources hinted on Friday that there is apparently no evidence of any 'drug-related exchanges' in her alleged WhatsApp chats with Aryan Khan, the son of Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan.

The sources reluctantly divulged that there are 'no traces or references' of any Marijuana (Ganja) or weed-related chat in the two star kids' WhatsApp communication being scanned in-depth by the NCB.

More likely, Ananya is being questioned for her version by the NCB for some different leads it has collected in the case, but the officials declined to elaborate.

The latest disclosure comes in the wake of certain unconfirmed media reports claiming the emergence of at least three purported WhatsApp chats between the two star-kids allegedly discussing drugs, etc. which the NCB was probing now.

In a surprise addition to the ongoing investigations into the October 2 rave party raid aboard a cruise ship, the NCB 'visited' the home of Ananya Panday and slapped her with a summons.

Acting promptly on Thursday, accompanied by her father and veteran actor Chunky Panday, Ananya went to the NCB and was questioned for over 2 hours by half a dozen officials, and has been summoned again this day (October 22).

The developments came even as a Special NDPS Court Judge VV Patil extended the judicial custody of Khan and 7 others arrested on October 3, till October 30. Khan's bail plea will come up before the Bombay High Court on October 26.

Earlier on Thursday, Shah Rukh Khan had visited Aryan in the Arthur Road Central Jail where he spent a few minutes with him, and later an NCB team 'visited' his Bandra bungalow.

This prompted the veteran Bollywood actress and TV hostess Simi Garewal, 75, to come out in indirect support of Aryan, Ananya and others vide a cryptic tweet: "In a population of 1,397,642,731 - they can only find these 6 or 8 young Bollywood stars to target for drugs??"

Meanwhile, after nabbing at least 20 people to date in the cruise ship raid case, the NCB has not ruled out making further arrests as the investigations widen and progress.
