Fiza appears before police, Chand Mohammed fails to turn up

Mohali (Punjab), Feb 20 (IANS) Fiza, the estranged wife of Haryana’s former deputy chief minister Chander Mohan alias Chand Mohammed, appeared before Punjab Police officials in this town adjoining Chandigarh Friday in connection with the complaint filed by her against her husband.
Fiza, earlier known as Anuradha Bali, met the superintendent of police (city). She had this week filed a complaint alleging that she had been raped, cheated and her religious sentiments had been hurt by Chand.

However, Chand Mohammed failed to turn up despite summons being issued in his name also.

Bali, a lawyer herself and former assistant advocate general in the Punjab and Haryana government, came with her lawyers and recorded her statement.

She said she had submitted evidence against her elusive husband with the police during an hour-long meeting with the official.

“We had sent our official to Chander Mohan’s residence in Panchkula Friday but he was told that Mohan is not at home. In such circumstances, we have to submit an ex parte report and will take the legal action accordingly,” Superintendent of Police Varinder Pal Singh told IANS.

“We have recorded the version of Anuradha Bali and based on the proof that she has given us, we will complete our investigations at the earliest,” said Singh.

Mohan and Bali embraced Islam and got married secretly in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut city last November. The two changed their names to Chand Mohammed and Fiza.

Chand Mohammed, who has been virtually underground for the last 25 days after he suddenly left Fiza’s house in Sector 48 of Mohali town, is the elder son of former Haryana chief minister Bhajan Lal. Fiza has expressed fears that he could have fled the country with his first wife and children.

Mohammed, a four-time Congress legislator from Kalka assembly seat in Haryana, did not attend the entire budget session of the Haryana assembly this month.

He lost his job as Haryana’s high-profile deputy chief minister December last year after he emerged from a more than 40-day hiding with a new name, religion and wife.
