On the other hand, Kohli told the police that he and Sahdeo had an argument but it got sorted out. A couple of days later, he left to Delhi and was shocked to learn that his wife was levelling accusations against him. The police have said that they are yet to come across evidence that Kohli changed his name to Raqibul and they have found no links connecting him to known terror groups or to flesh trade racketeers. The issue has already gained political mileage, with the Union home ministry asking the state to submit a report into the purported case of love jihad.
Kohli and his mother Kausal Rani were produced before the court of chief judicial magistrate (CJM), Ranchi, on Thursday, which sent them into 14 days judicial custody. Kohli claimed the case solely related to family affairs connected with Section 498 A and urged the court to prosecute him under only the said section.
