Studio N anchor Ch Shruti alias Meghna Reddy was stabbed twice by husband Nagender Reddy at his house in New Bhoiguda, on Wednesday afternoon, where she had gone to collect her belongings accompanied by two police constables. She survived the bid on her life and is recuperating at Gandhi Hospital where she is said to be out of danger.
Shruti fell in love with Nagender Reddy and married him in 2005. The couple has a five-year-old daughter and a three-year-old son. Differences arose between the couple and, in February this year, Shruti filed a domestic harassment case against Nagender alleging that he had been physically and mentally harassing her.
Based on the complaint, Nagender was arrested on February 16 by Central Crime Station (CCS) women’s police and was released on bail a week back.
