Nilambur murder:Traditional healer’s wife shares grief

Deceased Shaba Sharif's house- His wife Jabeena Taj

Mysuru: Jabeena Taj, wife of the traditional healer who was brutally murdered in Nilambur, expressed dismay over the happenings. According to Jabeena, she always had a hope that he would return one day but unfortunately they butchered him into pieces.

She was referring to the gruesome incident where her husband Shaba Sharif (60) was kidnapped and heinously murdered by a group of Malayalis whom she thought “would never do something of this kind”.

“What can I hope now? I was not able to see him alive one last time,” she shared her grief while breaking down.

In 2019, Shabaa Sharif, a traditional healer from Kerala was abducted from his house in Mysuru by a person named Shaibin Asharaf and his aides to gather the details of the medicine for haemorrhoids (piles). Since two years, Jabeena has been waiting for Shaba but only to know that he was murdered in a brutal manner.

She still remembers, how the gang deceptively took him. “A gang (from Kerala) came asking for him. They came after knowing about his specialized healing method. At first he was hesitant to go. But they informed that the patient is here in Mysuru and he went along with them in a bike. He had said that he would return within five minutes but he never returned.”

As Shaba did not return, Jabeena filed a complaint with Mysuru police. However, Jabeena said that the officials were lackadaisical. “If they have probed the matter properly, he (Shaba) would have been with us now,” she said.

“I expected that people from Kerala would never do something of this kind,” she added.

Jabeena-Shaba couple have eight children. All of them are married.
