Rohit Chillar, national Kabaddi champion has been arrested after his wife Lalita was found hanging at her Delhi residence over alleged dowry harassment.
Lalita left a two-hour long audio message and a note saying, “I am not strong enough to survive this, I have decided to quit.”
Chillar is likely to be produced in Mumbai Court today. His father had surrendered before the court earlier.
Lalita committed suicide on Monday, by hanging herself by a Dupatta, in the apartment in west Delhi, where she lived alone. She recorded a two-hour long message for her husband and a short note for her family. She alleges that she was tortured for dowry, taunted and beaten by Mr. Chillar and his family.
Senior police officer Vijay Kumar said, “Lalita said in the note that she was asked by her husband to leave him for his happiness, so she took this step”.
Her family believes she was depressed because she had suffered dowry harassment in her first marriage too.
Lalita’s father said, “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”.
