Cause of death of former Haryana deputy CM's estranged wife Fiza unclear: Autopsy report

New Delhi: The autopsy report of Fiza aka Anuradha Bali, the ex-wife of former Haryana deputy chief minister Chander Mohan Bali, has indicated no injury marks on her body, and adds that the cause of her death is unclear.

The report, that came out on Tuesday, says that the viscera has been sent for chemical examination.

Fiza's dead body was found on Monday at her Chandigarh residence by one of her uncles, Satpal, who had gone to visit her.

The Mohali Police is probing the cause of her death, and are not calling it a suicide yet.

Fiza came into prominence in December, 2008, when she converted to Islam to marry Chander Mohan, son of Congress leader and former Haryana chief minister Bhajan Lal. Chander Mohan was then the deputy chief minister of Haryana.

The couple became estranged within three months and subsequently, Fiza charged Chander Mohan with rape. She also joined a reality show and reportedly signed a Bollywood movie. At one stage, she had even contemplated entering electoral politics and was reported to be getting close to BSP.

Her body, in a decomposed and maggot-infested state was found by Mohali Police from her home on August 6 which suggested that her death might have occurred four to five days before her body was found. The police are trying to ascertain if her death was a case of suicide, murder or due to some other cause. Bottles of alcohol and cigarette stubs were reportedly lying around in the room where her body was found.
