A Muslim doctor named Masroor assumed a fake Hindu identity, raped a minor Hindu girl, converted her to Islam, and tried to marry her. The incident was reported from Sungarhi in the Pilibhit district of UP. The victim’s mother said that Masroor introduced himself as Dr. Amit to groom the minor.
The 16-year-old girl is a class 12 student. Masroor lied to groom the young girl telling her that he was a Hindu and working as a doctor at the district hospital. He would wait at the girl’s college gate and pretend to be in love. The girl had rashes on her hand and the doctor offered to get them removed and invited her to his room.
Masroor coerced the victim and took her to his house on various occasions under the pretext of giving ‘medicines.’ The young girl fell for the grooming jihad and Masroor raped her several times promising to marry her. Unknown to the victim, he allegedly filmed her during the act.
His family too acted along and they converted the girl to Islam. They even managed to procure an Aadhaar card in her name to show that she was of marriageable age. The victim’s mother said that she was born in May 2005 but Masroor and family forged her Aadhar card showing that she was born in May 2003.
On the 25th of this month, the victim’s family came to know that she was with the accused. Around noon they arrived there only to find the minor lying unconscious. Masroor claimed that he had administered her medication and informed the girl’s mother that she had converted to Islam.
The victim’s mother told him that she would rather call the police and opposed the conversion. Sensing danger, Masroor threatened to kill them both and ran away.
Activists of several Hindu organizations started to assemble at the spot as news of the grooming jihad/ rape of a young girl trickled out. They demanded strict action against all the accused.
SHO of Sungarhi, Inspector Shrikant Dwivedi confirmed that a complaint was lodged by the victim’s family about the rape and grooming jihad. He added that cases have been registered against Dr. Masroor, Mubina Begum alias Bina Begum Matloof, the doctor’s brother, and three unknown persons.
The victim was sent for a medical examination and a search is on for the accused. The UP Yogi Adityanath government has passed an anti-conversion law last year that also deals with such grooming cases.
