Broken relation breaks her will to live
*Srinagar Doctor Kills Self *Family Blames Would-Be Groom
Srinagar, June 30: Two months back Dr Midhat Amin, 29, daughter of late Dr Amin Ahmed Sofi, was on cloud nine when she got engaged to a Kashmiri medico settled in the United States. But little did she know that her joys would be short lived. The shock came when her fiancée, Dr Fayaz Ahmed Hakeem, son of Ghulam Ahmed Hakeem putting up near Shiraz cinema Khanyar broke the engagement. Jilted, the young woman committed suicide earlier this week.
Dr Midhat, a pass out from Government Medical College (GMC) Srinagar, was lying in a pool of blood at her home. Her throat and arm veins were slit, a typical sign of suicide. But this scene remained in veils till her mother arrived home in the afternoon of that fateful day only to find her daughter dead in the bathroom.
Shocked, the mother came out crying seeking help from her neighbors, who at once rushed to the spot. The entire Iqbal Colony HMT on city outskirts was shocked.
No one knew what to do and how. In the meantime police came in and started searching the house to gather evidences from the spot. By then locals had pulled out Dr Midhat’s body and had placed it in the drawing room. Dr Midhat’s mother, Ayesha Amin, was wailing and beating her chest crying: “Her would-be husband and in-laws are responsible for her death. They killed her. They thought my daughter is an orphan and they can do whatever they want.”
Soon after collecting the evidences, police took the body of Dr Midhat Amin, who was presently posted at Handwara, to JLNM hospital at Rainawari for the post-mortem.
When local boys were shifting Dr Midhat’s body into the police van, her mother was screaming, “I don’t want her body to be torn apart,” she yelled. The Sub Divisional Police Officer West Dr Shalinder Mishra who was on the spot assured her mother that if she wants the people responsible for her death be punished, legal formalities are must.
“She is like our sister and we want to ensure that the person who forced her to take such an extreme step should be taught a lesson,” Dr Mishra assured Ayesha.
As soon as the body reached the JLNM hospital even the cops present there were shocked when they heard that deceased was MD in Microbiology. “It is shocking that she couldn’t bear her engagement was broken. God knows how many lives she would have saved. It is a great loss,” exclaimed a cop.
Dr Midhat’s body was taken into the room where the post-mortem had to be performed. “It’s a clear case of suicide. She knew which vein she had to cut,” opined the doctor present there.
When her body reached back to Iqbal Colony HMT pall of gloom descended in the area; people irrespective of age were wailing. Her mother (Ayesha) came out and screamed: “We got her engaged on April 21, 2012, the boy had come from the US and we performed a simple ceremony. After he returned to US he changed his mind and started taunting my daughter over phone. He used to tell her that you are simple. I think I have made a wrong choice. You don’t open up…… I will snap this relation.”
People who had assembled there were weeping as her mother narrated what led to the breaking of the engagement. Amidst sobs and screams Dr Midhat was laid to eternal rest.
Talking to Greater Kashmir, Ayesha said, “These people through a middle woman Azi of Batmaloo had been sending the marriage proposal for two years. After my husband’s death she (Dr Midhat) and I used to stay alone as my son is settled in America. I didn’t want to send her to the US but somehow we agreed.”
Ayesha said that initially everything was okay. Soon after he (Dr Fayaz) reached the US he changed. “One fine day he called my daughter and told her that we will call off this relation and two persons will come to your house to convey it to your mother,” she said. “In between the middle woman Azi came to my house and told me that Dr Fayaz wants to call off this relation. I told her that I cannot do so. If that happens how will my daughter face the society? She is very sensitive.”
A few days after Azi, two of their relatives came here. “We will have to cut this relation as boy is not interested. He says that girl (Dr Midhat) is very simple. So consider this relation broken,” Ayesha quoted one of their relatives Muhammad Siddique as having said.
“Dr Midhat overheard our conversation. She started crying bitterly. Mama how I will face the society?” she added.
Ayesha said that Dr Midhat was in touch with Dr Fayaz till Thursday when she ended her life. “She (Dr Midhat) was asking him what mistake she had committed and why did he send his relatives to call off the relation, but that man remained adamant,” Ayesha added.
When contacted, Superintendent of Police (SP) West Dr Sunil Gupta said, a case under section 174 Cr PC has been registered and investigation has been taken up.
