A day after creating a stir by claiming that her husband and former Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Chander Mohan had 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 General Hospital here where she was improving, he added.
Aulakh said that Fiza's statement would be recorded after the doctors attending on her gave permission.
The police also proposes to conduct a search of her house to look for any possible suicide note.
Fiza had yesterday alleged that her husband Chander alias Chand Mohammed, former Chief Minister Bhajan Lal's son who had converted to Islam to marry for the second time, had been kidnapped at the behest of his family which had opposed their marriage.
However, 43-year-old Chand denied it 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.
