The case of kidnapping of two minor sisters came to light in Bahraich, Uttar Pradesh. The accused had fled to Telangana with both the girls, and finally the Uttar Pradesh Police has arrested the accused and recovered the girls from Telangana.
On March 11, two minor cousins, who were the residents of Jiganiya Mahipal Singh village in Ranipur Police Station area of Bahraich district were abducted by Intiyaz (25) and Wasim (20) alias Chhotkau in a four-wheeler. The fathers of the victims lodged a formal complaint with the police against four people, including a woman: Intiyaz, Wasim, Moin (40) and Wasim’s sister Gooja (19), all residents of the same village. SP Prashant Verma is said to have visited the village on March 12 and announced a reward of 15 thousand on both the prime accused.
Journalist Subhi Vishwakarma shared a copy of the FIR (page 1, page 2) which states that the minors were abducted around 7 PM when they had gone out for nature’s call. The father was out on some work and when he met accused number 2 (Moin) in the morning to enquire about his daughter, Moin made a call and brazenly said that “the girls will be brought back in 12 hours”.
The Uttar Pradesh Police formed several teams to pursue the case. 3 accused were arrested, but Intiyaz, Wasim and the two minor sisters were still missing. Police traced their location to Telangana. Upon getting this information, the SOG in-charge Anuj Tripathi and in-charge inspector Shiv Nath Gupta, crime inspector Kamla Shankar Chaturvedi, sub-inspector Suraj Kumar and other women constables reached Telangana.
They arrested the accused from Kurthi village of Kothapally police station area, Karimnagar district in Telangana, and both the girls were also recovered. Both the sisters have been sent to a One Stop Center, while the accused have been sent to jail.
Police have arrested total 5 people in this shocking case which has been totally missing from the mainstream media narrative even though a week has passed. There is a clear pattern of Islamist grooming gangs and human traffickers having networks all over the country, through which they escape to other states after committing a crime. Recently, a Muslim human trafficker from Jharkhand who had murdered a janjatiya girl Sushila Hansda fled to Kerala with his wife, and when he was finally arrested two other minor girls were recovered from him.
Mainstream Islamic religious groups like JUH, JeI and Islamist political outfits like AIMIM and AIUDF, who are regarded as ‘secular’ by India’s deracinated elite, are very likely part of this criminal Islamist network, seeing how they come out in the defence of such criminals time and again. ‘Secular’ and nominally Hindu-led political parties turn a blind eye to such preying on innocent girls for votebank politics. The Lutyens NGO-activist cabal is also every ready to provide intellectual cover-fire and legal aid for such criminals.
As a nation, we are failing to keep our children safe. Large swathes barely have any rule of law, and the situation is not much better than that faced by persecuted Hindus in Pakistan or Bangladesh.
