Bishnoi was educated at the Lawrence School, Sanawar. He was dismissed from the State Cabinet for his prolonged absence from the office and resurfaced after marrying Anuradha Bali, alias Fiza (Urdu: فضا ) and converting to Islam with her and adopting the name Chand Mohammad (Urdu: چاند محمد ). The conversion was merely to facilitate a legal second marriage, as Hindus/Sikhs are not allowed multiple marriages in India. Some Muslim clerics protested the misuse of the tenets of Islam for "a marriage of convenience".
On 29 January 2009, Mohan left Ms. Bali, claiming that he still loved his first wife and his children and wanted to reunite with them. He is believed to have moved to the Haryana city of Gurgaon at that time.
Ms. Bali is a former Assistant Advocate General of Haryana who left her employment to marry Mohan in December 2008. She was found dead, apparently having committed suicide, on 6 August 2012  She was cremated on 7 August 2012 in Chandigarh according to Hindu rites by her relatives.
Mohali police is clueless about mysterious circumstances leading to the death of Anuradha Bali. The police claimed that she had spoken to 8 people before her death and the last person she spoke to was Salim Alvi of Bulandshahar, who claimed to have been in constant touch with her. Salim also claimed that Bali had received death threats from some influential people in Haryana.
