It came as a surprise, even by Bihar’s lawless standards. Sultan Mia, a gangster with political connections, abducted a married woman, Kanchan Mishra, with her four-year-old child in broad daylight in the heart of Patna and forced her to marry him. The woman’s only fault: her beauty. The dreaded criminal forcibly pushed her into his car and took her to a mosque in Mainpura locality where their nikah was performed. RJD’s state minister Ejazul Haq and the officer-in-charge of the local police station came to bless the criminal. After the nikah, a lavish reception was organised at Haq’s.

Ever since, Kanchan’s brother and her husband Pappu Pandey, who works in a restaurant, have been running from pillar to post to free her. But no one wants to help, obviously because Sultan is the protege of the infamous RJD MP from Siwan, Mohammed Shahabuddin. Though the MP has reprimanded Sultan, the gangster’s men have threatened to kill Pandey if he tries to rescue his wife.
