In what has come as an unexpected piece of news to the fans of VJ Chitra, Chennai Police have arrested her husband Hemanth for abetting suicide and he was produced at the Poonamalle High Court. After being interrogated for six days, Hemanth is now booked under Section 306 of IPC (Indian Penal Code). Media reports suggest that the police had gathered enough evidence against him. It is expected that details regarding Hemanath's arrest will be made public soon.

On the day that Chitra died by suicide, she arrived at the hotel room late which she had shared with her husband. Later, she apparently went to the washroom saying that she was taking a bath. However, when she did not come back for a long time, Hemanth called for help and the bathroom door was opened with an emergency key. She was found hanging from the bathroom ceiling after which the police were called. However, questions were raised after marks were seen on her corpse.

What a jerk. He knew beforehand that she's an actress and she has to do her job. Glad that she's getting some justice now.
