Yet another case of grooming jihad, rape and attempted forced conversion to Islam, by multiple members of the same Muslim family, has been reported. On December 29, UP Police arrested gym owner Intezar (30), his father Abbas Ali (52) and brother Suhail (24) for raping a woman and attempting to forcibly convert her to Islam in Noida, Gautam Buddh Nagar district.
The woman met Intezar at a local gym in Noida, which comes under Delhi-NCR. He hid his religion and identified himself as ‘Sonu’. After developing familiarity with her, Intezar aka Sonu drugged her juice and raped her. To stop her from reporting the crime, he promised to marry her and also employed her at a gym he owned.
By chance, the woman overheard a telephone conversation and discovered Intezar’s real name and identity. When she confronted him, he physically assaulted her. Later, Intezar’s father and younger brother also joined in intimidating her and trying to forcibly convert her religion to Islam.
The accused Islamists have been charged under IPC sections 376 (rape), 323 (causing hurt), 328 (intentionally drugging or poisoning someone), 342 (wrongful confinement), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 120B (criminal conspiracy) along with provisions of the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Act.
