Mysuru: An aspiring model, who is also a drug addict, allegedly locked up her grandparents in their house and set it on fire here.

According to reports, the reason behind Priyadarshini's act was that her grandparents were nagging her to leave her drug addiction habit. The incident occurred on Wednesday night.

The people of the locality acted in a timely fashion and rescued the two elderly people, who escaped with minor burn injuries. Priyadarshini is still untraceable.

Priyadarshini is an aspiring model and was living on the outskirts of Mysuru city with her grandparents. As per reports, both her parents died some years ago.

According to their neighbours, Priyadarshini was a drug addict and it was a cause of tension between her and the grandparents, who wanted her to quit the habit.

On Wednesday night, Priyadarshini, tired of their nagging, locked up her grandparents in the house and allegedly set it on fire before running away from the scene. Hearing the cries of the old couple, the neighbours rushed in and saved them.

While the two escaped with minor injuries, the house was gutted in the fire.

Police have registered a case and are investigating the matter.
