Police on Friday arrested national Kabbadi champion Rohit Chillar for death of his wife Lalita, who committed suicide on Tuesday. Lalita allegedly left a suicide note behind, which points fingers at Chillar and his father for causing emotional distress. Chillar's father has also been arrested.
Rohit will be produced in court for transit remand by Delhi Police on Friday.
Earlier, the Bengaluru Bulls Kabbadi player posted a video on social media site saying that he was innocent. Kumar said that it was not possible that his wife would accuse him of any of the henious charges currently levied against him.
The 27-year-old Lalita was found hanging in her home in west Delhi's Nangloi area on Tuesday. The police say she recorded a two-hour audio message for her husband and a shorter one for her family. Lalita reportedly said in her suicide note that she was forced to stay alone while her husband remained out of Delhi frequently.
"Lalita said in the note that she was asked by her husband to leave him for his happiness, so she took this step," senior police officer Vijay Kumar said.
The couple met when Lalita was in college. Her family believes she was depressed because she had suffered dowry harassment in her first marriage too.
"My daughter complained to us several times but said Papa, for the sake of the society and our family, please don't go to the police," said Lalita's father.
Their wedding had taken place six months back. An SDM inquiry will be initiated in the matter, police said. A suicide note has been found and police will be scanning its content.
