While the complete forensic report on the death of film actor V. Uday Kiran would be out only in about six days, police sources say all evidences gathered so far have pointed to a suicide. The Tollywood actor had ended his life at his flat here on Monday.

Investigators are, however, trying to ascertain the circumstances that compelled him to do so. Forensic doctors had preserved the viscera of the body that would be sent to the laboratory for further analysis. The autopsy, which was video recorded, also reportedly deduces that it was a suicide.

Investigators analysing call data records of the actor have found that the actor received a call from a friend – a certain Sharat of Neredmet – at around 7 p.m. Sharat was classmate of the actor’s wife Vishitha. Some time later, Kiran rang up Sharat and they had a nearly 160-seconds-long conversation.

“Sharat said Kiran made casual talk about general topics. But he, in turn, informed Vishitha that Kiran sounded dull,” police said.

Vishitha left the house at Srinagar Colony in Punjagutta at around 3 p.m. to attend the birthday party of her family friend Rohit in Manikonda.

Earlier, her parents had come to the flat at around 11 a.m. and stayed till 7 p.m., even after Vishitha had left for the party. They too informed the police that Uday Kiran was normal, talked about general topics and in between, also had tea with him. At 10 p.m., Vishitha sent a text message, saying she had forgotten the battery charger. She also tried reaching him using phones of other friends at the party, but the actor didn’t take her calls. Later, she went to her parents’ house and called up Kiran through another phone. As there was no response, she rushed to the flat in Srinagar Colony, only to find the actor dead.
