Singer Nithyashree's husband's jump to death has been a shock to all in the industry and the singer's response to queries was that he was grieving his mother's death and could not handle the pain any longer.
The police inquired further about this with Mahadevan's car driver Suresh and found that her statement was indeed true and that he had been suffering from depression for the past 5 years and had been receiving treatment for it from Apollo in Chennai too.
Mahadevan's personal driver Suresh stated that the deceased had indeed been acting weird for the past few years and on the day of the tragedy he had visited his daughters at the tennis courts and then driven the car himself while Suresh was seated on the side. He had stopped the car on the Kotturpuram Bridge and Suresh thought it was for the usual reason of nature calling, but Mahadevan jumped off the bridge into the river with the car keys still inside his pocket. The driver had then called Nithyashree and the police as soon as possible.
Following this statement and other facts the police have concluded that Mahadevan's suicide was indeed due to depression.
