New Delhi: National kabaddi player Rohit Chillar who was arrested on the charges of provoking his wife to commit suicide, is being brought to Delhi from Mumbai on transit remand.
In a video message released on Facebook on Friday, Rohit purportedly sobbed and pleaded innocence.
“I have never made any demand for dowry and my father-in- law knows it. I will cooperate with the police in the probe,” he said.
He also said that he “loved his wife” and wants the truth to come out.
“I can’t believe she is no more. I don’t know what saddened her so much that she killed herself. I got to know about her death quite late and I couldn’t come as I was not granted leave. I am upset about not getting to see for one last time,” he said.
He also said that he hasn’t harmed anyone in his entire life.
“I have played for the country and have never harmed anyone. The person, I loved the most, has left me forever. I am alive because I want the truth to come out. I want justice. After that, I will also go my baavri (referring to his deceased wife). I don’t want to live,” he said in the video.
Lalita had allegedly committed suicide on October 17 at her parents’ house in Nangloi and in her suicide note as well as audio and video clips left behind she had alleged that her in-laws “harassed” her for minor issues and Rohit asked her to go away from his life.
A case was registered against Rohit and his parents and two Delhi Police teams had been formed to arrest Rohit and his parents.
Rohit’s parents had left their home in Kanjhawla and gone into hiding after Lalita committed suicide.
