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.
