Died: October 24, 2017.
Age at death: 30.
Cause of death: Murder.
Location: Narsingi, Hyderabad, India.
Disability: Depression.

Details:
Sana and her husband were involved in a car accident, in which she died. Her death was initially categorized as accidental, but her family demanded that the authorities investigate further. Sana had told them about her abusive husband, saying she feared for her life, and warned them that if she died, it would be murder. Repeated complaints of domestic abuse had been largely ignored.

Finally the authorities arrested Sana’s husband. It is likely that he hit her on the head with something heavy before ramming the car into a concrete divider.

Sana was a biker who made a cross-country journey to raise awareness about depression and suicide.

Perpetrator: Abdul Nadeem (Husband), charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
