More cash, jewellery comes out of Fiza’s lockersSeptember 13th, 2012 - 7:16 pm ICT by IANS
Chandigarh, Sep 13 (IANS) A further Rs.1 crore in cash and jewellery worth over Rs.30 lakh were recovered from the lockers of Fiza Mohammed alias Anuradha Bali, the dead estranged wife of former Haryana deputy chief minister Chander Mohan, police said Thursday.
This discovery comes just over a month after Rs.93 lakh in cash, 1.5 kg of gold and other jewellery were recovered stacked away under sofa seats and bed mattresses and in almirahs in her house.
The lockers, in Fiza’s name in different banks, were opened by the Mohali police.
“A lot of cash and jewellery has been recovered from her lockers. We are still counting and assessing it,” a police officer said.
Police had, earlier this week, ruled out foul play in her death based on the post-mortem and forensic reports.
Fiza was found dead in her house in Mohali town, 10 km from here, Aug 6. Her body was in a highly decomposed condition.
The Mohali police had investigated all angles, including suicide, murder and death by consuming something accidentally.
Fiza had married then Haryana deputy chief minister Chander Mohan, aka Chand Mohammed, in November 2008 but was later divorced by him.
She went missing in November 2008 with Chander Mohan. They reappeared in early December 2008 as a married couple after embracing Islam.
They got secretly married in Meerut in Uttar Pradesh and changed their names from Chander Mohan to Chand Mohammed and from Anuradha Bali to Fiza.
Following the controversy over his affair and second marriage, Chander Mohan, elder son of three-time Haryana chief minister Bhajan Lal, lost his job in the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government.
The marriage lasted hardly 40 days, with Chander Mohan suddenly leaving her house. He later divorced her.
