“It all started when the channel conducted a pair dance. He doesn’t want her to pair with male artists and made calls to her while she was in shooting. He would threaten her to breach the shooting spots and she would leave the spot immediately in the fear of losing him. Love blinded her” Rohit said in the interaction. “He is the sole reason for her death. I want media channels to stop degrading Chithra’s personal character as she is dead now” he added.
At one point, Rohit went on to reveal that Hemnath tried to conduct “Virginity” test on the actress. “My wife is a doctor and he once asked her to conduct virginity test on Chithra. He also asked a doctor who was running a clinic in the apartment he was living. Chithra herself came to us and talked about it emotionally.” Rohit said.

On 15th of December, the police arrested Hemnath on charges of adetment to suicide. Hemnath moved a bail petition in the Madras High court on December 14. In the petition, Hemnath said that he did not force Chithra to quit acting nor did he raise suspicion over her character. The petitioner argued that the charges against him were baseless and so the court should give him bail, citing the reasons.
Meanwhile, Chithra’s parents and Rohit filed a petition against his release. “The court did not accept the petition of Hemnath’s friend since there was no locus standi and he was not related to the case. So, considering these, the court has adjourned the case to February 2 and for Central Crime Branch to decide on giving the bail” said Prabhavathy according to The News Minute.
