Film producer-director B. Ashok Kumar, co-producer of several actor-director Sasikumar’s  films committed suicide in his residence in Alwarthirunagar near Valasaravakkam on Tuesday i.e 21st November. In his suicide note, Ashok Kumar, has blamed a film financier for pushing him to take the extreme step.

 

An official of Valasaravakkam Police Station said Ashok Kumar, a native of Madurai, committed suicide by hanging in his multi-storeyed apartment at Arcot Road in Alwarthirunagar. His suicide note accused a film financier based in Madurai, from whom he had borrowed money on interest.  In the note, Ashok Kumar said he was left with only two options, to murder or to commit suicide, and he was choosing the latter.

 

M Sasikumar has filed a police complaint against financier Anbu Chezhiyan. The police has booked the case against the financier on the charges of abetment of suicide.  

 

The police said on Tuesday morning, Ashok Kumar's friends tried calling him but he failed to answer calls so one of his friends came to his house looking for him and he found hanging him from the ceiling.


The Valasaravakkam police who registered a case under ipc Section 306 (Abetment of suicide), have launched a hunt for the financier. Anbu Chezian, 43, of South Masi Street was already arrested in Madurai, for extorting money from one of the producers in 2011.
