Muslims gang-rape minor Hindu girl for refusing to convert

The four men have been booked under various sections of the Pocso Act, the Indian Penal Code and the Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act

Four Muslims gang-raped a 15-year-old Hindu girl after she refused to convert to Islam to marry one of them. The incident of crime came to when the minor girl got pregnant and gave premature birth to an infant that died in a hospital.

The girl is a native of Madhya Pradesh but had gone to Malegaon, Maharashtra to work, where she was trapped by 23-year- Majid Khan, who introduced himself as ‘Mohit’.

Explaining how the Muslims operated, Ujjain’s additional superintendent of police Amrendra Singh said, “Khan raped the girl on the pretext of marriage and later tried to get her to change her last October. The girl refused to do so, and Majid and three of his friends gang-raped her.”

“The girl came to live with her in Ujjain and the family didn’t go to the police. But in April this year, she complained of stomach pain and had to be admitted to a hospital. It was found that she was pregnant. “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,” ASP Singh said.

The state police sought the cooperation of Maharashtra Police. With the help of the girl, Khan was called to Ujjain last week and arrested and handed over to Malegaon Police. On 8 June, a joint team of Malegaon and Ujjain police exhumed the body of the infant for a DNA test.

All the four Muslims have been booked under various sections of Pocso (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act and Indian Penal Code and Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Act, and the main perpetrator has been arrested, police said.

Ujjain superintendent of police Satendra Shukla said, “We are taking legal opinion about registering a case in the girl’s home district of Barwani in Madhya Pradesh as the MP Freedom of Act will not be applicable in Maharashtra.”

The recently introduced Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Act, which contains stringent provisions against any individual or institution indulging in religious conversion by marriage or through “allurement, force or by misrepresentation or by any other fraudulent means”, followed similar legislation saw the of the day first in Uttar Pradesh. A similar law will soon come into effect in Gujarat on 15 June.
