Relatives allege mystery in death of actor Unni Rajan P Dev’s wife
Thiruvananthapuram: Relatives have raised suspicion on the death of Priyanka, wife of actor Unni Rajan P Dev. They alleged that she was forced to commit suicide due to domestic violence. Unni Rajan P Dev is the younger son of late actor Rajan P Dev.
Priyanka was found hanging at her residence in Vembayam here on Wednesday afternoon. A day before her death, Priyanka had filed a complaint against her husband Unni in the Vattappara police station.
Speaking to Mathrubhumi.com, Priyanka’s relative Reshma revealed that Unni used to beat Priyanka over dowry issues. In the initial days, Priyanka used to hide domestic violence issues from her family. But when the torture became unbearable, she filed a complaint with the police, said Reshma.
“Unni and Priyanka were in love. So, they were happy when they started a new life together. But later, Unni started selling Priyanka’s jewellery for his needs. Her mother used to transfer money for Unni as per his demand. But Priyanka didn’t tell us these matters earlier," she said.
After selling everything possessed by Priyanka, he beat up her and threw her out of his house. She was cruelly beaten up. Bite marks and bruises were found on her back. Priyanka had recorded some visuals of Unni attacking her, Reshma added.
“Priyanka filed a complaint with police after returning to her home in Vembayam. She was determined to continue with the case. But amidst this, she got a phone call. This phone call led to her suicide. Unni must be punished for his deeds,” said Reshma.
