Nishama's husband remanded in custody for 15 days

The suspect arrested in connection with the death of Nishama Mohamed has been remanded in custody for 15 days.

A mother of three, 28-year-old Nishama Mohamed, died in HDh. Nolhivaram island on Saturday. Her husband, Aboobakuru Faisal of Rosie Villa, ADh. Fenfushi was arrested in Kulhudhuffushi.

A person speaking from Nolhivaram said Nishama's body had no external injuries. However, there were some signs of injury to her neck, some sources have said.

Nishama's family learned of her death when they went to her room in search of her when the family failed to contact either Nishama or Faisal by phone after Faisal posted photos of Nishama without her hijab on his Facebook page. The family opened the room by breaking the door. Faisal was in Kulhudhuffushi City when the news of Nishama's death became public. Police arrested Faisal after he handed himself over to the police.

Faisal works as a technician at the Nolhivaram FENAKA office. Some islanders allege he is a drug addict.
