Women Candidate Found Dead -AMU POLLS Report

The first-ever woman candidate to contest for the president's post of the Aligarh Muslim University Students' Union was found dead under mysterious circumstances on Wednesday.

According to the police, Asma Javed (28) is suspected to have died a couple of days ago but her body was recovered on Wednesday.

However, her family members claim that her death was the result of the campaigns she had taken up in the past for fellow woman students in the university.

"We lost touch with her on May 9. I reached here on May 12 to trace her and today her body was found in her apartment. It is clearly case of murder," her brother Salman said.

A resident of Balrampur, Asma had completed her Ph.D from the AMU in 2-13 and was living in an apartment in the city.

Her father, Hamid Javed said he had sent Rs.45,000 to Asma recently as she wanted the money to register for a basic teacher's course. The money and other electronic equipment were missing from her flat.

Her family members were quoted as saying that Asma was suffering from depression ever since her husband had deserted her.

"It is a murder. The door of her flat was locked from outside," SSP of Aligarh J. Ravindra Gour said.
