She was also one of the contestants in the British reality game show, Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao along with Shweta Tiwari, Palak and more on Sony TV. Anuradha was the former Assistant Advocate General of Haryana, but she quited her job to get married with the former Haryana Deputy Chief Minister, Chander Mohan. Their relationship became very controversial in November 2008. The two converted themselves to Islam before their marriage. And after the ceremony, they names was changed to Fiza and Chand Mohammed. However, after two months of living together, Chand leaves Fiza to go back to his first family , his wife and two children. After few days, he called Fiza for a divorce. But Fiza rejected it and she said Chand only married her to commit fraud and just to have a sexual relationship with Fiza. But she gave up after some months of fighting and became very depressed. Later, she formed a party against her husband.  Sadly, Fiza was found dead in her bedroom and her body was in a decomposed state in 2012. But due to Fiza’s suicidal attempt in 2009, it is believe that she committed suicide once again. There are signs of alcohol and poison found in her viscera. Her body was found in her own house in Mohali.   Another Version As controversial Fiza Chand Mohammad’s life was, her death too was equally full of mysteries yet to be unlocked.   Fiza Chand Mohammad, born as Anuradha Bali was an estranged second wife of Chander Mohan, the former Deputy CM of Haryana, and son of former Chief Minister Bhajan Lal. In August 2012, she was found dead in her house in Mohali. So what caused her death? Some say she was depressed since her husband had left her, some say she couldn’t face the world anymore. But the truth Is yet to be revealed. Fiza was born to Dharam Pal, a Military Engineer Service employee in Chandigarh in 1971. She happened to be appointed as the Assistant Advocate General in the B.S Hooda government in Haryana, in 2005. She met Bhajan Lal’s son, and they eloped. In December 2008, they resurfaced together, having adopted Islam, and converted, they even married each other in a mosque in Chandigarh. While the deputy Chief Minister was already married to Seema Bishnoi, Chander Mohan aka Chand Mohammad and Fiza appeared in the media, and openly said that they are married until their death. The father of Chand Mohammad, and former Chief Minister disowned his son. In 2009, Fiza and Chand were sacked by the Hooda Government. Crack in the relationship started surfacing when Chand Mohammad wanted to pursue his political career, but he was kept back. It was barely 20 days to the marriage, the husband of the newlywed deserted the wife, and left without notice in her residence at Mohali. While she alleged that her husband was kidnapped and pointed fingers at Kuldeep Bishnoi, Chand’s younger brother, Chand Mohammad was spotted in Raj Ghat, in New Delhi. When taken into custody, he eloped again, only to be found at his brother’s place in Chandigarh, where he confessed that he is missing his first wife and their children. Disheartened and completely in shock, Fiza filed a criminal case of rape against Chand Mohammad. In March 2014, Chand and Fiza were divorced. Chand apparently had called from London and uttered the word “Talaaq” three times, to end their marriage. Depressed from how the things were not in her control, she wanted to join politics to take revenge. In 2010, she participated in a reality show but came out of it soon.   She campaigned against Bhajan Lal and his son, in the run-up to the assembly polls, but hardly garnered any support. In 2012, Anwar-ul-Haq from BSP gave her a ticket to run for municipal elections. In August 2012, she was found dead at her residence in Mohali, when her neighbors reported of foul smell from her house. While the mystery of her life is yet to be unlocked, all she left for us, are a bottle of alcohol and two glasses to solve her mysterious death.
