The ex-Bigg Boss contestant and people's favourite Oviya, has received summons by the Nazarathpet police following a complaint filed by an advocate alleging her that she attempted suicide inside the sets of the show.
The complainant has asked the police to launch an inquiry into her alleged suicide attempt. The channel had telecasted visuals of Oviya immersing herself into a pool on August 4. The complainant further alleged that her suicide attempt was triggered by depression caused by the activities forced on her by the producers, the show's host and Vijay TV. However, Oviya's manager has denied suicide attempt by the actress.
