Gudur Madhukar Reddy’s wife Swathi attempted suicide by consuming toilet cleaner at her house in Hyderabad.
Her family members said, she took this extreme step as her husband’s family members abused her alleging she was responsible for his suicide.
Her family members rushed her immediately to a hospital but her condition was still critical.
NRI techie Gudur Madhukar Reddy aged 37 years committed suicide in US earlier in this month on April 4 by hanging himself at his house in Seattle.
Swathi also works there as a software professional and the couple have a daughter.
Gudur Madhukar Reddy’s body was brought to his home town Bhongir in Telangana and was cremated on April 11.
When Swathi and her family members went there to attend his funeral, she was attacked by her in-laws and forced her to leave the place.
Swathi arranged a press conference the next day to deny the allegations made by Madhukar’s parents. She confirmed that Madhukar committed suicide because of depression and stress at work.
Swathi’s father Narasimha Reddy said that she was feeling mental pressure as she was ill-treated by her in-laws at the funeral.
He added that she took this step as she was facing threats and allegations from Madhukar Reddy’s parents without any evidence.
