HYDERABAD: Even as mystery shrouds the sudden death of Hyderabad’s cross-country biker Sana Iqbal, her husband on Sunday refuted allegations against him. Abdul Nadeem, Sana’s husband, was behind the wheel at the time of the accident in the wee hours of October 24. Sana, married in 2014, had been living with her mother for last couple of years. Refuting the allegations levelled against him, Abdul Nadeem said he would soon file a defamation case against his in-laws and friends of Sana who spread false information in the media.
Asserting his innocence, Nadeem. speaking with mediapersons along with his 2-year-old son, an advocate and friends, said, “Police investigation will prove that it was an unfortunate accident and not a murder and if I am proven guilty, I will accept that also.” Recalling what happened on that day, he said that since he got to meet Sana only during the midnight hours as they both were working in the night shifts, they met as usual. “She asked me to get some milk for my son and we went out for a drive. While approaching the Tipu Khan bridge, I miscalculated the turn and hit the electric pole on the median from the right side. I assumed the right tyre was punctured,” he said.
Though he refused to comment on the domestic abuse that led Sana to lodge a complaint with the Humayun Nagar police station earlier, he said that they were trying to get back on terms with each other. “I do not want to tell anything bad about her. I have forgiven her and the differences are buried now.”
He further said that his mother-in-law and friends of Sana would be taken to court for spreading slander against him. “I will soon initiate a defamation case against them for spoiling my image in the public for no involvement of mine in the death of Sana,” he said and added that he attended seven counselling sessions after lodging the police complaint but had lived separately since June.
