According to reports, the victim, married Imran 11 years ago against her parents’ wish and changed her name to Rizwana after accepting Islam.

Following the separation, Imran gave triple talaq to Antima Singh alias Rizwana. Rizwana, in turn, filed a police complaint against her husband accusing him of harassment and physical assault.
Irked by the police complaint, Imran visited Rizwana’s sister’s house on Wednesday. He met Rizwana in a grocery shop located near the house where he stabbed her Rizwana on her neck in broad daylight and fled from the spot. According to reports, Rizwana’s 12-year-old niece was also injured in the assault, when she tried to intervene. Locals who gathered there, hearing Rizwana scream in pain rushed her to the hospital, where she was declared dead.

Anita Chauhan, the sister of the deceased confirmed that Imran was an alcoholic, who had married her sister when she was 16-years-old, against the wishes of their family. After marriage, he started indulging in regular fights with Rizwana.
In the later few years of their marriage, Imran had started abusing and physically assaulting her sister also, said Anita, alleging that Imran had sold off his wife to someone in Goa. Rizwana luckily managed to flee Goa. After coming back, Rizwana decided to forgive Imran and went back to living with him, lamented Anita.
