Ilavarasan was found dead on July 4 in 2013 near a railway track after an alleged break-up with his wife who belonged to a Hindu case. His death led to unrest in many districts of Tamil Nadu.
The report filed by CB-CID stated that alcohol traces were found in his body and that multiple witnesses confirmed that Ilavarasan was extremely depressed after the break-up that culminated in his death.
Ilavarasan, in an interview, had stated that some cast elements were pulling strings and that’s why his wife decided to go back with her mother and that they were running between places fearing for life.
Madras High Court accepted CB-CID’s report stating that no further investigation is required.
