Nizamabad: Alliance of Democratic Reforms Party MLA candidate Yamaganti Kannaiah Goud, 29, died by suicide in his residence at Gayatrinagar on Sunday. A vegetable vendor filed nomination papers for the Nizamabad Urban Assembly constituency and he is one of the contestants among 21 candidates.
Police said that Kanniah Goud might died by suicide due to harassment from nude app calls organisers. His last phone call and data show that he reacted to the calls from nude apps. Reportedly, the organisers threatened him to disclose the nude videos for extortion. Unable to bear the harassment, Kannaiah Goud ended his life, police said.
Kannaiah Goud is survived by a wife and an infant. He recently constructed a new house and filed nomination papers for the Nizamabad urban Assembly constituency.
