A Delhi court today sent the father of national-level Kabaddi player Rohit Kumar to 14-day judicial custody in connection with the alleged suicide by his wife Lalita who had accused him and her in-laws of harassment.

Rohit’s father, Vijay Singh, was produced before a link magistrate who remanded him to judicial custody till November 4 after the police did not seek his custodial interrogation.

Vijay was arrested after he surrendered at Nangloi Police Station in West Delhi. He was a sub-inspector in Delhi Police and had been dismissed from service, police said.

During the day, Rohit, who is in the navy, was arrested by a team of Delhi Police in Mumbai this afternoon. The kabaddi player would be produced to Delhi after being produced before a Mumbai court.

Lalita had allegedly committed suicide on October 17 at her parents’ house in Nangloi. 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 father and two Delhi Police teams were formed to arrest Rohit and his father, who had also gone into hiding after Lalita committed suicide.
