HYDERABAD: A 30-year-old woman Radio Jockey, who is  married to a 29-year-old Army major working in Hyderabad, died under suspicious circumstances at Army quarters in Bollaram police limits here. She died last Tuesday but it came to light on Monday after her family lodged a complaint with police alleging dowry harassment.

The deceased was Samya Singh,  a native of Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh. Her husband, Vishal Sharma, is a major in the Army working at the 54 Infantry Division in Bollaram here. He is a native of Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh.

Police said the couple were married one-and-a-half years ago in UP and it was a love marriage. They belong to different communities. They came to Hyderabad six months ago and were living in Army quarters at Bollaram. Samya Singh worked as a radio jockey in Radio Hyderabad, an FM radio in the city.
She died last Tuesday by hanging from the ceiling at her residence while her husband Vishal was asleep, police said. Shocked on seeing his wife’s body hanging from the ceiling, he alerted the police. The body was handed over to Vishal and Samya’s parents after post-mortem.

Assistant commissioner of police (Begumpet) S Ranga Rao, who is investigating the case, said that Samya died under suspicious circumstances. “During preliminary probe, it was found that she had committed suicide. Following a complaint lodged by Samya’s parents, we registered a case of dowry death and the investigation is on,” Ranga Rao said. The police are likely to question Samya’s husband Vishal in connection with the case.
