Death of IGMH nurse: Police requests charges against husband and his lover

Marvin, the husband of IGMH Nurse Mary Grace who died under suspicious circumstances captured next to his lover, a Maldivian nurse working at IGMH, Haleemath Lamha.

Police have requested the Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO) to press charges against the husband and his lover in connection to the death of Mary Grace, a Filipino nurse at Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) who died under suspicious circumstances.

PGO confirmed to Sun that the case has been forwarded to them by the Police. They noted that they will make a decision regarding the case prior to fourth of next month.

The death of Mary Grace on October 19 was initially reported by her husband as a case of suicide by hanging.

Her dead body was taken to the hospital by her husband, Marvin, moments after she had gone home for break whilst on duty.

According to a credible source, the husband initially told the hospital staff that his wife committed suicide by hanging herself, and then later changed his story and said that she suddenly collapsed.    

The police found the death suspicious, and opened an investigation into the case. 

Marvin was arrested in connection to death on October 27.

After conducting an autopsy on Mary’s body, the Police announced that they do not believe Mary died of suicide by hanging, and that the postmortem examination revealed the cause of death to be blunt injuries. 

Days after Mary’s death, Marvin’s lover, Haleemath Lamha’s phone was seized by the Police for investigative purposes. Lamha is local nurse, working at IGMH’s Emergency Room.

As per information received from a credible source – some co-workers were aware of the affair between Marvin and Lamha. Altercations have reportedly occurred between Mary and Lamha over the affair, prior to Mary’s death.

It is said that Marvin and Lamha were very open about their affair.

In an interview given to Sun prior to this, Lamha confirmed the affair between her and Marvin – adding that both of them ended the affair, a day prior to Mary’s death. However, she said that following Mary’s death, they decided to resume their romantic relationship.

Lamha was arrested under a court order on December 16.

Sun has been informed that Marvin and Lamha are suspected of the premeditated murder of Mary – and that the murder took place in a brutal manner inside a room on the first floor of Ma. Udhuheykokaage, where Mary lived.
