Chandigarh: Fiza alias Anuradha Bali, the ex-wife of the former Haryana deputy chief minister, Chander Mohan, was found dead at her Chandigarh home on Monday. Fiza allegedly committed suicide and the highly-decomposed body was found on her bed.
No suicide note was recovered from the spot. DSP Mohali city DS Mann said that it was Fiza’s uncle who informed them of the suicide. “Fiza’s uncle informed us about this. We are investigating the matter… It looks like the incident is 3-4 days old. We can only speak about the matter after the investigation is complete.”
Meanwhile, Fiza’s uncle Satpal, who discovered the body, said, “I came today morning…. the body was in a decomposed state.”
Fiza stayed alone at her Chandigarh residence. She last spoke to her uncle on August 1.
A twisted love story
Fiza was the ex-Haryana Deputy CM Chander Mohan’s second wife. Chander Mohan had converted to Islam and changed his name to Chand Mohammad to marry Anuradha Bali in November 2008, following which, she too changed her religion and took the name of Fiza Mohammad.
Chander Mohan was already married to Seema Bishnoi and had three children from her.
Both surfaced after their marriage one month later in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut city. After a nearly 40-day stay together, Chander Mohan suddenly left her house and was later traced in London.
Adding further drama to the controversial marriage, Chander Mohan divorced Fiza over the phone and through SMS in February 2009, only to return to her in June the same year.
The second marriage cost Chander Mohan his high-profile job as Haryana’s deputy chief minister in the process.
