National-level Kabbadi player Rohit Chillar, accused in the dowry death case of his wife, was sent to 14-day judicial custody on Tuesday by a Delhi court.

Rohit Chillar was arrested on October 21 from Colaba in Mumbai where he works with the Indian Navy, three days after his wife Lalita committed suicide. He was brought to Delhi on October 23.

Chillar was on Tuesday presented before a metropolitan magistrate who remanded him in judicial custody till November 8 after his two-day police custody ended.

On October 21, Rohit’s father Vijay Singh was also remanded in judicial custody till November 4.

A notice was served on Chillar’s family on Thursday evening to join the police investigation but they went away after locking their house.

Lalita, 27, was found hanging by a sash by her father Karan Singh on October 17 evening in Delhi. She was staying alone while her in-laws stayed in Kanjhawala in Delhi.

Her marriage to Chillar in March last year was her second. Lalita had accused her husband and her in-laws of harassment.

She left a two-hour audio message and a suicide note in which she wrote: “I am not strong enough to survive this, I have decided to quit.”

A case of dowry death was registered against Chillar and his parents on a complaint of Karan Singh.
