Sacked deputy CM's second wife attempts suicide

Last updated on: January 29, 2009 16:06 IST

A day after creating a stir by claiming that her husband and former Haryana deputy chief minister Chander Mohan has been kidnapped, his second wife Fiza allegedly attempted suicide at her residence near Chandigarh on Thursday.

Fiza was suspected to have consumed some poisonous substance, probably 'celphos' tablets at her house in Mohali, Senior Superintendent of Police, Mohali, Jatinder Aulakh said.

She was immediately rushed to the local hospital where her condition was improving, he added.

Aulakh said that Fiza's statement would be recorded after the doctors attending on her gave permission.

The police will also conduct a search at her house to look for any possible suicide note, he said.

Fiza had on Wednesday alleged that her husband Chander alias Chand Mohammed, former Chief Minister Bhajan Lal's son, had been kidnapped at the behest of his family, which had opposed their marriage.

Bhajan Lal had disowned his elder son after he converted to Islam to marry Fiza. Chand, who was sacked as Haryana's deputy CM, already has a wife and two children.

However, 43-year-old Chand denied the kidnapping within hours and had told police and his wife on phone that he had not been abducted.

"I went by myself...I am not a child who will disappear suddenly," Chand had said on Wednesday.
