As reported earlier, Chethana had sought her parent's permission to undergo fat surgery but, her family had strictly declined for the same. Yet, the young actress still went against her parents and opted for the fat removal surgery.
Chethana reportedly died due to a cardiac arrest which occurred due to water getting deposited in her lungs during surgery.
As per a report in IANS, after her daughter's death, her father Varadaraju had said, "My daughter died due to the negligence of the hospital. The doctors have conducted surgery without parental consent and without proper equipment. My daughter was hale and hearty. She was absolutely fine. She had gone to the hospital with her friends."
He added, "Someone has suggested to her that she had more fat in the waist and without consulting any family member she had come for the surgery. I will initiate legal action against hospital authorities." After his complaint, an FIR has been filed against the hospital and it has been shut down.
