21-year-old Mofiya Parveen Dilshad hailed from Aluva, Kerala and was pursuing an LLB course at the time of her death.
Mofiya had met her husband, Mohammed Suhail, on Facebook and Suhail had supposedly said that he had a job in the UAE, and that he was a vlogger. Soon after the wedding, Suhail allegedly demanded large sums of money from Mofiya and when such demands went unmet, he purportedly turned abusive.
She had previously approached the police with complaints in this regard but they were apparently disregarded with one police officer, who she named in the suicide note, summoning both families and reprimanding her.
The same night, Mofiya was found hanging in her room.
Soon after the incident, the police officer named in the suicide note was removed from the post of Aluva East Station House Officer by the District Police Chief.
Interestingly, he had actually been transferred to Aluva by way of punishment for his alleged mishandling of the Uthra murder case, in which the woman’s husband was recently convicted for murder by inducing a cobra bite.
