A 30-year-old Indian nurse, hailing from Kottayam district in Kerala, was found dead inside her flat in Dubai.
The deceased has been identified as Santhi Thomas, who was living with her husband Jobi (Antony) in Karama.
According to media reports, Joby found her hanging from the fan in the bedroom when he got back from work on Saturday.
Santhi, who was working with a private hospital, was the daughter of KV Thomas, the former vice president of the Payippad panchayat in Changanassery.
Santhi had been married to Joby for four years and joined him in Dubai around two years ago.
The couple has a three-year-old daughter, who has been living with Joby’s family in Kerala.
The Dubai Police have begun investigation into the death and interrogated Joby as her relatives alleged foul play.
“Santhi’s parents said the couple had some discord between them and the child is living with her father’s parents. They said she had earlier booked a ticket to go home and it was cancelled,” a family friend reportedly told Gulf News.
