In another case of Love Jihad, a 15-year-old girl from Barwani district in Madhya Pradesh was allegedly gang-raped by four men, after she refused to convert to Islam to solemnize marriage with one of them.
According to the police, this incident took place in Maharashtra’s Malegaon district, where the teenage girl worked as a labourer.
As per police reports, the minor girl came in contact with a 23-year-old youth who used the fake identity under the name Mohit while his real name is Majid Khan. Khan allegedly sexually assaulted the girl after promising to marry her. He had reportedly attempted to convert the girl to Islam last October.
However, when the girl said no to the conversion, Khan and his three friends allegedly gang-raped her which led to her pregnancy.
What is even more disheartening is the fact that the girl’s family members did not report the crime to the police and housed the minor at her sister’s house in Ujjain.
A report by Hindustan Times quoted Ujjain ASP Amrendra Singh as saying “She had a premature delivery in the hospital, but the baby died. It was then that the girl shared her ordeal with another woman in the hospital, who then informed a Hindu organisation and the police about it,”.
The police have however is going ahead with the investigation and have exhumed the body of the baby that died due to premature delivery for conducting DNA paternity tests.
