The late actor Raja P Dev who passed away in 2009 has acted as the villain in many movies in Tamil including 'Vasantha Kala Paravai', 'Aadhi' and 'Red' apart from hundreds of films in Malayalam and other languages. His son Unni P Dev is also an actor and on Tuesday he was arrested by the Kerala police for abetting the suicide of his wife Priyanka.

It is said in the complaint that Unni and Priyanka got married on November 21, 2019. Theirs was a love marriage after they met at Thodupuzha. Three months after their wedding, Priyanka was frequently tortured physically and mentally, says her relatives. Several times she was even brought back to her home. Reportedly, Unni and her mom used to frequently demand money from Priyanka and her family as dowry.

Priyanka had filed a complaint at Vattappara police station on May 11 alleging domestic violence. The next day, she was found hanging at her home. Her brother then raised suspicion on her husband but police could not arrest him due to him being COVID 19 positive.

On May 25th after Unni P Dev tested negative for coronavirus the police arrested him at his house in Ernakulam district and took him into custody. The actor has been charged with 498 A and 306 of the Indian Penal Code.
