Thiruvananthapuram: The 25-year-old Kerala nurse, Anliya, was found dead in August 2018. After Anliya's father Hygenous Parakkal submitted a complaint to Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, the case was handed over to the crime branch. 

A video of Anliya and her father Hygenous singing a song on Anliya's wedding day has gone viral. The video was posted on Facebook by Hygenous. 


Hygenous raised suspicions about the death of his daughter because her husband didn't even inform him of Anliya going missing.

Anliya, who hailed from Kochi was an MSc nursing student. She married Justin, who was born in Thrissur. The couple married in 2016 and has an eight-month-old baby. 

She was found missing on August 25, 2018. On August 28, her decomposed body was found in Periyar river near Aluva. 

By the time Anliya's parents, who worked abroad, reached Kerala, the autopsy had been completed.

Anliya's husband, Justin, his family and their eight-month-old baby stayed away from the funeral. 

Regarding this incident, Hygenous submitted a report to Pinarayi Vijayan.

Four months after Anliya's death, her husband, Justin, who was a suspect in the case, surrendered before a Judicial Magistrate court in Thrissur on January 19.

As per reports, Anliya's diary was found by the crime branch, and the diary has offered clues to mystery that surrounds her death.

In the 18-page diary she wrote about her job, dreams, the life of her baby and the cruelty she faced in her husband’s home. 

Her diary also stated that the alleged torture by her husband's family continued even after the birth of her baby. Reports say that Justin's family even tried to separate the new-born and the mother. 

The diary also contained a sketch in which a girl is seen writing on a dairy and a few hands pointing fingers at her.
