Kozhikode: Crime Branch will investigate the mysterious death of Vadakara native Riswana (21), at her husband's residence at Kainatty in Wayanad. The case was handed over to the crime branch by local police after the family alleged foul play in her death. The case will be investigated by crime branch DySP R Haridas.

Riswana, daughter of Vadakara native Rafeeq, was found hanging at her husband Shamnaz's residence. It was alleged that Shamnaz's family failed to inform this incident to her family. Further, the absence of his family at the hospital also led to more doubts over her death. Her relatives also alleged that Riswana has been facing torture and harassment for the last two-and-half years.

Rafeeq said that her daughter had disclosed this to her friends. "She told her friends that she faced harassment in the hands of Shamnaz, her father-in-law and sister-in-law," he added.

The relatives also alleged that Shamnaz's family failed to report the incident to the police on time.
