In yet another grooming case, a man named Saif Ansari and male relatives of his family including his father Shahid have been booked for sexually and physically abusing and forcibly converting a Hindu woman to Islam.
As per reports, a Hindu woman was locked up and gang-raped in various locations including Delhi’s Paharganj, Gurugram, Rohitas, and Bihar. Ansari, his father, and other male relatives have been accused of gangraping, filming the act, and blackmailing the woman to embrace Islam.
OpIndia reporting on the matter, notes:
The incident dates back to 2021 when accused Ansari approached a 26-year-old Hindu woman at the Gurugram metro station. The woman who was employed in a private company used to travel from Delhi to Gurrugram daily for her job. Ansari, however, was employed on a timing counter at the nearby bus station. He used to see the woman travel every day and had been keeping a keen watch on her.
One day, he approached her and asked for small help. He told her that his friend had recently lost his job due to the COVID circumstances and that he was looking for an employment opportunity for him. He requested the victim to look for an opportunity in her office. The duo exchanged their phone numbers and Ansari initiated the chat to further propose to her for marriage. The lady gently replied that she was not interested in the proposal as she was a Hindu.
Despite denying keeping in touch, the accused continued to pursue her and keep a watch on her. On September 6, 2021, Ansari deceptively invited her for lunch and fed her foul food. He told her that he was returning to his native place in Bihar and that he wanted to see her for one last time. He fed her with Biryani, intoxicated her through food, and abducted her. He took her to a hotel in Delhi’s Paharganj area and raped her. He also lit a cigarette, used it to physically abuse her body parts, and recorded a video of the horror episode to blackmail her to accept Islam.
Ansari then spirited away the lady to Bihar where his father Shahid Ansari and other male relatives raped her. After a week or so, the accused took her back to Gurugram and locked her in his paternal aunt’s house. In Gurugram too, the victim was continuously raped by Ansari and his relatives. His paternal aunt threatened her to convert to Islam and forcefully fed her with beef.
On May 13, the victim managed to slip from the spot and contacted the Gurugram Police. She narrated the entire horror to the Police who then registered an official complaint against the accused and his relatives. Accordingly, an FIR has been registered against accused Saif Ansari, his father Shahid Ansari, paternal aunt, uncle, and other relatives who harassed the victim.
Saif Ansari is already married residing in Delhi and has a reputation for cheating on girls. The villagers from his village in Bihar have said that he had trapped a Hindu girl in the past as well.
Why did the villagers let him go?
