Srinagar, Mar 17: The death of a 32-year-old woman under mysterious circumstances in Shamaswari, Khanqah area of Shaher-e-Khaas Sunday triggered protests by her family and neighbors who said she was murdered by in-laws.
 While a police handout said Rehana wife of Reyaz Ahmad died under “suspicious circumstances at her in-laws house at Shamswari” adding that a case has been filed, the family said she was “murdered by her mother-in-law and sister-in-law.”


THE JEWELRY ISSUE
 Rehana’s brother Nadeem, a resident of nearby Khanqah area said his sister had strained relations with her in-laws over her jewelry, which her parents had gifted her at the time of marriage, some three years back.
 “Her mother-in-law wanted her to sell all her jewelry for purchase of a new house to which her sister-in-law had to be fifty percent partner. But why would my sister make anyone else a partner to assets purchased out of our gold jewelry?” Nadeem argued adding this had been a bone of contention between the two parties since her marriage on May 16, 2010. “Barely three months after the marriage, they started torturing her over the issue of jewelry and since then she often had strained relations with the in-laws,” the complainants added.
 “Even her husband would often oppose the demand of his mother and other family members and finally the jewelry was kept at a bank locker,” Rehana’s brother added. “Since then she had given birth to two babies but both died infants,” he added.
 “Though she would often avoid living with her in-laws, for the past few days the couple was putting up there,” the bereaved family said.


SHOCKING CALL
 The family said on Thursday midnight she shocked them by calling them at 12:00 AM only to ask if they were fine. “Her odd hour call kept us in dilemma and the next morning we called her on phone. But there was no response for the entire day,” the family said adding they even phoned Rehana’s husband but he too didn’t respond Friday.
 
‘AILMENT DRAMA’
 “On Saturday, we were told that Rehana is not feeling well. When we rushed there she had been kept in bed as if ailing, but was actually dead,” Nadeem said.
 He said: ‘We started shouting that she is dead and they are trying to hide something… But they took her to hospital where doctors declared her brought dead.”
 Nadeem said they found that Rehana’s SIM had been broken to pieces by the in-laws. “This could be why there was no response from her phone on Friday,” he said adding Rehana had been murdered many hours before them being informed about her “ailment”.


POLICE SPEAKS
 When contacted SP north City Tahir Saleem Khan said police was investigating the case. “We’re waiting for the post mortem report to come in,” the SP said.
