Kochi: Kerala State Women’s Commission Chairperson Adv P Sathidevi on Tuesday said that the suicide of Mofiya Parween, a law student in Aluva, is an unfortunate incident. The Commission officials will visit Moufiya’s house at Aluva, she said.

“The commission will investigate whether Mofiya was mistreated at the police station. The DySP is tasked to look into the case. Further action on the matter will be taken after receiving a detailed report,” she said.

Earlier, Mofiya killed herself after allegedly being mistreated at the Aluva East police station when she arrived to provide a statement on her complaint against her husband regarding domestic violence.

Mofiya had complained to the Women's Commission about the harassment. The Commission had also received a copy of the complaint lodged by her at the police station. The Commission was about to take further action on the matter, Sathidevi added.

Mofiya had lodged a complaint with the police about a month ago regarding the harassment she faced from her husband and his family. She was called to the station to give her testimony. Mofiya's father alleged that the CI misbehaved and insulted them at the station. Moufiya killed herself at her residence in Aluva on Tuesday. A suicide note recovered from her room describes the humiliation she faced at the station.
