Kakkoor: “Even if it was suicide, there would be some motive behind it, right? Nobody would suicide without any reason. Let the reason behind her death should come out…” reacted Shareena, mother of vlogger Rifa Mehnu, on the post-mortem report that came out last day stating that her death was due to hanging.

The body of Rifa was exhumed two months after her death. She was found dead in her apartment in Dubai on March 1. Her parents had expressed disbelief over the statement of her husband and his family that an autopsy was done in Dubai. The Kerala police then sought the approval of the Revenue Divisional Officer for conducting the post-mortem.

“It was Mehnaz who was with our daughter. He has to tell us what happened to her,” she added. The family said that they are pleased with the way the investigation is progressing. Rifa’s father Rashid said that it is suspicious that Mehnaz is not cooperating with the investigation procedure. He also added that he expects that things will gain clarity once the remaining test results come out.

The family says the night before her death, Rifa had phoned home and that she sounded and seemed happy. The family alleged foul play after Mehnaz 'lied' about having conducted the post-mortem in Dubai and tried to hurry along with the burial of the body.

In the complaint filed by the family, it is stated that Mehnaz has been using drugs, and he has assaulted Rifa physically, even in their presence. The family also raised suspicion over the quick return of Mehnaz to his native place in Kasaragod soon after Rifa’s funeral. He took Rifa’s phone and other belongings with him. He has also not bothered to check up on his son, they alleged.

Post-mortem report

The post-mortem overruled foul play in the death of vlogger Rifa Mehnu. It said that she died by suicide.

The report confirmed that the mark on her neck was due to suicide. The report of a chemical analysis of internal organs is yet to come.

The investigating officials of Dubai were not able to conclude the reason behind the suicide of Rifa. The body, which was brought from Dubai, was buried here.

The family will go ahead with the case for abetment to suicide, their advocate said.
