Ayesha suicide case: Gujarat Police has arrested absconding accused Aarif Khan, the husband of Ahmedabad-based Ayesha Banu Makrani (23) who had died by suicide on February 25, in Pali of Rajasthan on Monday night.

Before she jumped in the river, she recorded a last message for the world. In the message she said that she is not doing anything out of pressure and she is glad she will meet Allah.

Shyam Singh, superintendent of police, Jalore said, “The operation is that of Gujarat Police and the local police station in Jalore is extending its full cooperation in this case.”

Ayesha was an employee of ICICI Bank mutual funds division and a final year student of MA in Economics in SV Commerce College at Relief Road in Ahmedabad.

Ayeesha’s father said that he had paid Rs 1.5 lakh in dowry to Aarif on January 26, 2020. Even in 2019, an FIR was lodged against Aarif and his parents at Vatva police station for domestic violence after Ayesha had alleged that she was beaten up at her in-laws’ residence in Jalore over the issue.

Police also obtained Ayesha’s call detail records (CDR), which showed that on February 25, she had a 72-minute conversation with Aarif before she took the extreme step. Ayesha also had a five-minute conversation with her parents in which the latter are heard pleading to her to not take the extreme step, police said.
