Kerala Governor visits residence of Mofiya who committed suicide

Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 28( BPNS)

Kerala Governor, Arif Mohammed Khan visited the residence of 23-year-old Law student, Mofiya Parvin who committed suicide on Monday, 22 November after alleging that she was a victim of cruel physical intimidation by her husband and his parents. She has also in her suicide note mentioned that the Aluva Circle Inspector of Police, N.S. Sudhir had insulted her and her father and that Police should take a criminal case against him.

Governor Arif Mohammed Khan after visiting the residence of Mofiya and after speaking to her parents told media persons said “The death of Mofiya Parvin was unfortunate, tragic and very heart trending. I feel extremely sorry. There are 18 laws in the country against domestic violence and abuse of women. Kerala Police was one of the best police forces in the country but there may be black sheep like the Circle inspector who had misbehaved with her. However, there are people’s representatives like Anwar Sadat who took up the case boldly.”

Meanwhile, the Special team investigating the suicide death of Mofiya Parvin has included the name of suspended Circle Inspector of Police, C.L. Sudheer in the First Information Report (FIR). The woman had alleged that the concerned inspector had insulted her in front of her husband and her inlaws.

Her father Dilshad Salim had also said that the Circle Inspector was of criminal mind and had spoken roughly at his daughter and him when they went to the station as complainants. Dilshad said that the CI had asked him whether he had paid any dowry to his son- in law and whether he was a human being.

The state government had to suspend Sudheer after criticisms came from across the state that he was being protected by the ruling CPM even after erring as an officer in several police stations.
