Woman Allegedly Gangraped, Forced to Convert in Meerut

Three persons have been arrested in connection with an alleged abduction, gang rape and religious conversion of a 20-year-old woman in Kharkhauda area of Meerut district, police said.

"Three persons have been arrested in this connection so far," Inspector General of Police (law and order) Amrendra Singh Sengar told reporters.

Referring to a cut mark on the abdomen of the victim, he said that medical examination was being conducted.

"The medical examination is being conducted to ascertain several aspects. This aspect will also be looked into in further examination," Sengar said.

He said that for delay in lodging the FIR and failing to take prompt action in the matter, Kharkhauda Station House Officer Dinesh Kumar Singh has been removed from the post and sent to police lines.

Tension gripped Meerut district's Kharkhauda and Atrada area here as members of a particular community attacked and pelted stone at the houses of members of another community last night, over the alleged gang rape and religious conversion of the woman.

Police and Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) personnel have been deployed in the area to bring the situation under control.

According to Superintendent of Police (rural) Captain M S Begh, the victim's father had lodged a complaint at Kharkhauda police station against village head Nawab Khan, cleric Sallaullah, his wife and daughter Nishat for abduction and rape.

The complainant alleged that Nawab along with five others abducted his daughter on July 23 and took her to a madarsa where they raped and illegally confined her. They also forcefully made her sign some papers related to religious conversion.

Begh said, the woman managed to escape and returned to her house on July 30 and narrated her ordeal to her parents.

He said the woman's medical examination has confirmed rape and cuts were found on her abdomen. He rejected media reports that the girl's kidney had been removed.

Meerut District Magistrate Pankaj Yadav said Sallaullah, his wife and daughter have been arrested in the matter.

Since the incident occurred in Hapur area, he said the post magisterial inquiry into the matter will be taken by Hapur District Magistrate.

A magisterial inquiry into the incident will be conducted by Deputy District Collector S P Singh, who will submit a report within a week, District Magistrate (Hapur) Rajesh Kumar Singh said.

Anwar will say this is an isolated case, or worse, the girl, according to him, is lying ans is a member of RSS.

But if the case would be otherwise and the victim was a muslim, Anwaar would say RSS has done this.

Whoever is behind this, must know they are damaging the interests of the Muslims they want to help.  Indians are getting very ;polarised and these cases does not help the situation.

Anwaars picking and choosing which cases of rape must be 'thoroughly investigated' are revealing ( viz. cases where maulvis, and not the comman man are allegedly accused )

What a hypocrite!

Today saudis have banned their men from marrying Pakistani girls. And China has forbidden Muslims keeping veils and putting beards. Imagine if India did this.

The other day, the Sikh community which was doing a great job educating Muslim children was attacked mercilessly just because the court gave verdict in favor of Sikh Gurudwara.  Now a Hindu girl teaching in Madrassa is kidnapped and raped.  That is gratefulness of Muslims now a days.  We have come a long way from gratefulness of "Kabuliwala" days.
