Crime Patrol actor Preksha Mehta has committed suicide. She was 25. Preksha took her life by hanging from a ceiling fan on Monday night at her residence in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, according to a report in timesofindia.com.

The actor reportedly left a suicide note but it does not mention why she decided to end her life. Rajeev Bhadoriya, inspector from Heera Nagar police station, told the publication that a one-page suicide note has been found from her room. “The note mentions about how Preksha tried to stay positive during the period of crisis owing to the lockdown but she couldn’t. The lack of work was breaking her self-confidence”, Rajeev said.

As per the reports, Preksha went into depression due to lack of work amid the coronavirus lockdown.

Her last few social media posts hint at the mental agony she was going through. In her last Instagram story, Preksha wrote: “Sabse bura hota hai sapno ka mar jaana” (the worst thing is your dreams dying)“.

Apart from Crime Patrol, Preksha has appeared in TV serials like Meri Durga and Laal Ishq.

This is the second suicide by a TV actor during the ongoing lockdown, when all shooting activity has come to a halt for two months now. A few days ago, actor Manmeet Grewal took his life by hanging from the ceiling fan at his Mumbai home. Reportedly, the actor was in a financial crisis and had run into huge debts.
