Jyoti Singh Thakur | HENB | Muzaffarnagar | Sept 19, 2017:: Four Muslim youth have been accused of gang-raping a Hindu teenage girl for 10 days forcing her to convert to Islam. It is also alleged that the victim girl was forced to eat meat even after strong protests. The incident has taken place in a communally sensitive area known as Muzaffarnagar in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
The Muzaffarnagar region, located close to capital New Delhi, has witnessed serious communal violence between Hindus and Muslims in the past. The latest incident is bound to raise tensions in the area as authorities try to handle the situation carefully and a Muslim police officer is trying to suppress many things to save the face of local law and order situation.
The 16-year-old victim has accused the four young Muslim men – identified by the police as Akram, Aslam, Ayyub, and Salim – of raping her in captivity after abducting her. The suspects are thought to have been known to the victim.
“The girl has filed a FIR [First Information Report] against four youths — Akram, Aslam, Ayyub and Salim — for gang-raping for about 10 days,” said local police officer Mohammad Rizwan, according to the Hindustan Times.
She was waiting for public transport on 6 September when she was offered lift by the perpetrators to drop her off at the uncle’s place. However, after entering the suspects’ car, she was kidnapped and constantly relocated to different places during the captivity.
The suspects had reportedly attempted to forcibly feed her meat and compelled her to convert to Islam. They later released her but threatened her with harsh consequences if she reports to the police.
However, the incident came to light when her parents filed a formal complaint against the alleged rapists.
According to the girl, the four men set her free on September 16 on the outskirts of her village. She alleged that they threatened her if she told anyone about what they had done, they would kill her and her family members.
However, the girl shared her ordeal with her parents, who informed the police.
Police registered a case against the accused under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act.
Meanwhile, a tweet from the official account of Muzaffarnagar police on Tuesday evening denied the force-feeding of meat.
Bhopa circle officer Rizwan said, “We are investigating the case. Nothing can be said with clarity as of now, but prima facie it appears there might be some exaggeration in the application that the girl gave.”
Police did not immediately share details of whether the girl’s parents or other family members had approached them during the period she was allegedly missing.
Ajay Sahdev, superintendent of police (rural), said, “Investigations are on and the picture will soon be clear.”
The Muslim culprits are still at large and officials have launched the manhunt to capture them. Some Hindu activists have already made demands for a speedy justice and punish such ‘Rape Jihadists’ vehemently; investigating the case whether the culprits have any connection with the Rohingyas – many of them now settled in Delhi.
