VJ Chitra was found dead at the hotel room she was staying in, during the early hours of December 9. The actor was best known as Mullai, a role she played in the soap opera 'Pandian Stores'. VJ Chithra's suicide came as a shocker to many, as the actress had a critically acclaimed fan base both inside and outside the industry.
Even while the police had concluded Chitra’s death to have been suicide after the post mortem reports, her friends and family members have been alleging a foul play. There were reports from relatives and friends who claimed wounds on Chitra’s body and sought a full probe into her death.
Meanwhile, there were various reports in social media, claiming that VJ Chitra was pressurized both by her mother and her husband, which apparently drove her to end the life.
