shehna

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Health Minister Veena George has ordered an investigation into the suicide of the lady doctor from medical college. It was alleged that Shehna committed suicide due to dowry issues. The Director of Child Development Department was instructed by Veena George to investigate the incident and submit a report. Women's Commission Chairperson P Sathidevi responded that Shehna's death was heartbreaking. Sathidevi also informed that strong action will be taken in the incident.

The family alleges that Shehna committed suicide because her marriage did not happen. Shehna's family had said that her marriage was fixed at the beginning of her PG studies itself and it was cancelled due to a dispute over dowry. Even the paint job of the house for the wedding was completed.

The family alleged that the groom's relatives came demanding a huge amount of dowry. The marriage was called off since Shehna's family could not afford this and Shehna was upset about this. Her brother said that Shehna was suffering from depression. The police have recorded the statement of Shehna's relatives and are proceeding with the investigation based on this information.

Twenty-seven-year-old Shehna from Maitri Nagar Naas Mansil, Venjaramood was the daughter of the late Abdul Aziz and Jamila. The second-year PG doctor from the surgery department was found to have committed suicide. Shehna was found dead in the room when an inspection was conducted as she had duty at night but did not arrive.
