Police record Nafisa Joseph's fiancÚ's statement
Police here Saturday recorded the statement of Gautam Khanduja, the fiancÚ of VJ Nafisa Joseph who, her family says, committed suicide over their soured relationship.
Khanduja, an automobile parts exporter, and his lawyer went to the Versova police station, within whose limits Joseph, a model and former Miss India was found dead at her residence, to record his statement.
Police had Friday began searching for Khanduja after an autopsy on Joseph showed she had sustained injuries a couple of days prior to her death.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Amitabh Gupta said: "We want to interrogate Khanduja to find out if it was an altercation with him that led Nafisa to kill herself."
Although Mumbai police ruled out foul play Friday evening, they wanted to know from Khanduja what happened in the hours and days before Joseph's suicide.
"Nafisa's mother Usha Joseph told us there were quarrels between her daughter and Gautam (Khanduja)," Gupta said.
According to the police, Nafisa had inflicted bruises on herself two days before the suicide.
Joseph's family say she met Khanduja one year ago at a pub and was keen on settling down with him.
Khanduja and Joseph had planned to get married on August 7, they said.
