Before she committed suicide, Lalita Dabas left two voice recordings on her mobile detailing alleged “beatings” she suffered at the hands of her husband and national-level kabaddi player Rohit Kumar Chillar and his family, police said Wednesday.

Police also formed teams to locate Chillar’s family members, who stay in a village in outer Delhi. “Their mobile phones are switched off, we are investigating. Chillar, who is in Mumbai, has also not come forward and his phone is switched off. We will send a team to Mumbai soon,” said a senior police officer.

Police said that there were two voice messages in the mobile phone in which Lalita detailed the “torture” she was subjected to and the demands for dowry, which eventually forced her to commit suicide.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Vijay Kumar said, “There were several instances where the victim had alleged that she was beaten up by the father-in-law and her husband. In fact, three days after her marriage, she was beaten up by her father-in-law and later by her husband too. As per the recording, it seems that the reasons for the beating were dowry and her different lifestyle compared to the accused family.”

Lalita and Chillar had got married on March 11.

A senior police officer said that in the recording, the victim alleged that apart from the beating, she was frequently abused by her in-laws.
