Court fixes dowry death charge on Suhaib Ilyasi

Press Trust of India

Posted: Mar 29, 2003 at 1438 hrs IST

More than three and a half years after Anju Ilyasi's death, a Delhi court on Saturday framed charges against her husband Suhaib Ilyasi, who was anchor-producer of teleserial "India's Most Wanted", in the case of her alleged dowry death.

Holding that a prima facie case is made out against the accused, additional sessions judge Aruna Suresh framed charges under Section 304B (dowry death) and Section 498a (cruelty by husband or relative) against Ilyasi and set May 16 for commencement of trial.

Anju's death grabbed the headlines after allegations by her sister Rashmi Singh that Ilyasi had inflicted extreme mental and physical torture on Anju ever since marriage. However, the producer had denied the charge. "Anju was being neglected financially and emotionally and she was tortured by Suhaib (Ilyasi), his mother, his father and sister-in-law," Singh had said in her statement before Sub Divisional Magistrate, Preet Vihar.

The allegations forced police to open a fresh probe into the case.

The investigations went on for a long time with police filing the chargesheet nearly three years after the incident. Anju reportedly had died of self-inflicted stab wounds in her abdomen at the couple's apartment in East Delhi.

Police has lined up 41 witnesses to prove their case.
