A MAN has alleged that his wife has been taken away by her stepfather who also sexually abused her for several years before her marriage to him recently.

The complainant, Mukarram Ansari, a resident of Aishbagh, has alleged that his wife, Afroz Jahan, went missing soon after their marriage on August 24.

When the girl returned to her parental house a few days after the marriage, she was not allowed to return. Ansari alleged the girl’s stepfather Anwar has taken the girl away. The woman reportedly managed to make a phone call to her in-laws’ house and told them her ordeal.

Ansari alleged that his wife was sexually abused for eight years before her marriage. Her father had died earlier and she lived with her mother and stepfather before her marriage. A complaint has been made to the Aishbagh police but the police are yet to register a case.

Talking to Hindustan Times, Station Officer NS Damle said, “Many complaints come to us and it might have also been reported but I am not aware about it”. Damle said he would look into the matter.

Body found, student missing: The body of a youth was recovered in Ashoka Garden on Saturday evening. A passer-by spotted the body near a factory and informed the police.

Though the body has decomposed the deceased looks like a youth. The body has been sent for post-mortem to ascertain the cause of death. The police are trying to ascertain the deceased’s identity.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, an engineering student has gone missing from Jehangirabad. Om Prakash, 22, who lived in a hostel near Malviya Nagar went missing on Friday evening. Efforts are on to trace him. He is a third-year-student of BE. In yet another incident BJYM activists, who were dissatisfied with registration of a case, staged a demonstration at the Nisahtpura police station on Saturday.

They were alleging the police of unfair action in a case involving attack on one Hemant, after he had asked his tenant Rakesh to leave the rented portion of his house. The demonstration ended after senior officials assured the activists of impartial investigation.
