Missing girl traced, says forcibly wed


Kolar: A Hindu girl was kidnapped and forced into marriage by a youth belonging to a minority community in Kolar, though police are not too sure if it is a case of love jihad.

    Preethi, 19, from the Vysya community, was missing for the past 10 days. Her father filed a missing complaint with the Kolar police, who found that a lot of calls were made to Preethi’s mobile from a particular number. Later, it was found that Imran, resident of KGF who was running a mobile shop in Kolar, had made the calls.

    The police finally traced the couple to Gulbarga, when they were about to board a Hyderabad-bound bus.

    According to circle inspector Renuka Prasad, Preethi told the police that Imran, son of Syed Hyder, a reserve police sub-inspector at KGF, had forcibly taken her away from her house. After taking her to Bangalore, he had snatched her mobile and threatened her. He had married her in a ‘nikah’ ceremony at a mosque, and got her signatures on a few papers. Preethi said she was not aware what she was doing, as she was in a “disturbed state of mind”. She also told police that Imran forced her to wear a burqa.

    Renuka Prasad said the police brought them to Kolar late on Saturday evening. Based on Preethi’s statement, the police took up a case of kidnap against Imran. He confessed he was in love with Preethi. Police are investigating Imran’s antecedents. He was remanded to judicial custody till January 2
