A Hindu girl was found dead in suspicious circumstances in Telangana’s Shamshabad area of Hyderabad, after being deceived by her live-in partner Dr. Mohammed Ali.
Pujitha (27) was a civil aspirant and died on either December 23 or 24. Police learnt about her death on December 26 after neighbors complained of a foul smell coming from the house. They reached the spot and shifted the decomposed body to the hospital for post-mortem.
Although police are currently calling it a ‘suicide’, a case has been registered under suspicious death and Dr. Ali was arrested on Thursday under section 306 IPC (abetment of suicide). He was sent to judicial remand.
According to DCP Shamshabad, R Jagadishwar Reddy, the deceased girl was in a live-in relationship with Dr. Mohammed Ali for the last four years. Pujitha was shocked after she discovered that he was already married and had children.
“During the investigation, police noticed that Mohammed Ali was in a live-in relationship with the girl Pujitha for the last 4 years and later when Pujitha got to know that Mohammed Ali is already married and had children, she was upset about it and there was an altercation which took place between them,” the police said. Further investigation into the matter is underway.
Video footage of police taking the body for postmortem shows Pujitha’s family members crying inconsolably.
As per News 18, Pujitha completed her B.Tech from Bharat Engineering College in 2018 and had shifted to Royal Villa colony in Shamshabad to prepare for civil service exams. Telugu outlet 10TV.in reports that Pujitha had met Dr. Mohammed Ali four years ago when she had gone to NIMS (Nizam Institute for Medical Sciences) for her mother’s treatment.
Bharat’s leading English-language daily The Times of India has covered this tragic case with a terse one paragraph article on their online site, with no mention of the girl’s identity or any other details about the case.
Recently, Hyderabad had witnessed another shocking case of inhumanity by a Muslim live-in partner, Shahbaz, who dumped his own infant daughter in the bushes after the death of his Hindu partner Divya due to complications from childbirth.
Several inter-faith live-in relations between Hindu women and Muslim men have ended up in the death of the woman. Shraddha Walker’s murder by Aftab Poonawalla became known all across the country because of the sheer brutality involved, but many cases go virtually unnoticed like this, this, this, this, this.
