Cops search for man who pushed wife to suicide

Bandra resident Rani Mansoori, 24, who had consumed poison on May 1 and was battling for life at the Bhabha Hospital, died on Saturday.

Following Rani’s death, the Nirmal Nagar police have registered an abetment to suicide case against her husband Mohammad Hafiz Mansoori, 32, and are currently on the lookout for him.

The duo got married on April 9 this year, but their relations soured soon after as Rani’s in-laws were unwilling to accept Rani, the police said.

Rani and Mansoori met an year ago and soon fell in love. Mansoori, worked at a garment unit located near Rani’s Navpada residence in early 2010, decided to marry against his parents’ wishes, the police said.

“This was Rani’s second marriage and Mansoori’s family members were against the alliance. Though Mansoori married Rani, his parents didn’t allow her to enter their house in Bandra. Mansoori stayed with his parents and Rani with hers even after marriage,” said senior inspector PS Bagade from Nirmal Nagar police station.

Bagade said Rani was disturbed, as she couldn’t live with her husband.

“She asked Mansoori to move out of his parents’ house so that they could stay together. Though he agreed, he still kept delaying it which anguished her further,” the officer said.

Though no suicide note was found, the police have registered a case of abetment to suicide against Mansoori after Rani’s brother Sherkhan Pathan lodged a complaint against Mansoori. Mansoori has been missing ever since Rani consumed poison last week.
