P Rajagopal, the owner of the Saravana Bhavan chain of restaurants, has died in hospital a week after he surrendered to serve a life sentence for the 2001 kidnapping and murder of an employee.

"Once when she was ill, under the pretext of better treatment as advised by another doctor, Accused No. 1 (Rajagopal) forcefully shifted her to another hospital, where he advised her not to have sexual relations with her husband and made her undergo a series of tests".

The founder of the restaurant chain popular in the country and overseas, Rajagopal was sentenced by a sessions court to a 10-year jail term on charges of killing Santhakumar.

1990s - Rajagopal has his eyes on 20-year-old Jeevajothi and had proposed to her but was declined.

Jeevjyothi was the daughter of one of the former employees of Saravana Bhavan.

Rajagopal, who was admitted to Stanley Medical College Hospital, Chennai owing to health complications was shifted to a private hospital recently after his son requested the court to grant him permission to move his father to a private hospital, after he claimed that Stanley hospital did not have adequate facilities to treat Rajagopal. He then surrendered in the murder case as per the orders of the Supreme Court. However, Jeevjyothi married Shanthakumar in 1999 after refusing Rajagopal's proposal. Two years ago, the outlet was sealed by the corporation for lack of adequate parking facility.

Rajagopal, who turned his Saravana Bhawan restaurant into a global chain, died at Chennai's Vijaya hospital where he was taken on Tuesday with heart problems. The prosecution told the court Rajagopal threatened the couple in 2001 and demanded they end the marriage.

His restaurant chain, according to NDTV, has outlets in 20 countries including the U.S., the UK, France and Australia. Later in July 2003, he was again in trouble for trying to bribe the same woman and assaulting her brother.

In March, the murder conviction was upheld by the Supreme Court.

Shantakumar was murdered in October 2001 and his dead body was found in Kodaikanal city of Tamil Nadu.

The evidence was "natural, consistent, cogent and probable", and it did "not find any reason to disagree with the findings arrived at in that regard by the Trial Court as well as by the High Court", the Supreme Court said.
