Model-turned-actress Sahana was found dead in baffling conditions at her home in Kozhikode on Thursday night. According to reports, the actress had commended her 22nd birthday earlier in the day. Sahana’s friends have claimed that she suffered domestic abuse from her husband Sajjad. Police have detained Sahana’s husband Sajjad as part of investigations into the actor’s death.
Sahana had begun her profession working in various commercials in Kerala and had as of late worked in a Tamil film as well. Her significant other Sajjad had worked in Qatar before and is right now jobless. The couple resided in a leased house in Kozhikode. Her body was found on Thursday night by her husband.
Sahana’s family has claimed that she might have been killed by Sajjad and his family. They say that he used to bother her for cash. Sahana’s mom said to a news channel, “My daughter would never die by suicide, she was murdered. She used to cry all the time saying they were torturing her. He used to get drunk and create trouble. His parents and sister were also torturing her, then I suggested that they move to a separate house. Even after that, my daughter told me that he was behaving badly with her and wanted money. The 25 sovereigns of gold that we gave had been used. She had wanted to meet us on her birthday.”
The police are exploring the situation and have not indisputably precluded unfairness. A senior police official expressed that it isn’t yet sure if this was a matter of suicide. ACP K Sudarshan told the media on Friday, “She acted in a Tamil venture and received some money for it recently. The couple seems to have had arguments over this. Yesterday was her birthday, but he came back late. The couple had another argument then. According to the husband, he found her dead inside the bathroom after that.”
