Hemanth and Chitra stayed together at a hotel and Chitra after a late night’s shoot had returned to her hotel. Hemanth then claimed that his wife had asked him to wait outside while she goes to take a shower. After a prolonged time, a worried Hemanth had reportedly taken the help of the Hotel’s manager to get access to his room to find Chitra hanging from the ceiling. Hemanth was then taken into custody for further investigation regarding the untimely death. During the first day he revealed that the couple was legally married via registration.
After a couple more days, Chitra’s mother had claimed that something was fishy about Hemanth’s behaviour and accused him of allegedly killing her daughter.
After six days of scrutinizing and interrogation, Hemanth has been arrested and taken into custody for abetting the actress’ suicide. According to the reports, Hemanth was arrested and was produced at the Poonamallee High Court. During a recent media interaction, the Police claimed that they have gathered enough evidence to issue a public arrest. Reports now suggest that the Police have obtained an audio evidence against Hemanth.
According to police sources, a conversation between VJ Chitra and her father-in-law was found in her phone. In the audio, Chitra had said that Hemanth repeatedly objected to her playing intimate scenes with her co-artists of TV series Pandian Stores. It was also revealed that heated arguments often arose between the couple. She shared an incident where Hemanth made her promise in public that she would not participate in reality shows that may have her on-screen pair from the series as her co-contestant.
Apparently, all these incidents happened before the couple registered their marriage. Post their marriage, Chitra was reportedly abused by Hemanth and he accused her of having illicit affairs, reports DT Next.
