Family of Ghaziabad girl’s ‘husband’ alleges harassment
Family members of Mudassar, who has been sent to 14 days' judicial custody by a Ghaziabad court for eloping, alleged that their son has been falsely implicated.
His father Dr Irfan said, “My son told me at Dasna Jail that he and Aditi Tyagi got married a year ago and that the marriage was registered at Tis Hazari Courts. They got married at Arya Samaj Temple at Yamuna Bazar in Delhi.
Mudassar had even changed his religion and got a Hindu name Manav.” The family also claimed that the police had recovered certain articles from the couple which were not mentioned and displayed at the press conference held in this connection at Indirapuram Police Station on Wednesday.
“The marriage certificates in original are in custody of the police officers at Indirapuram Police Station and the investigating officer. The police had forced Mudassar’s friend Imran to bring the copies to the police station,” the father said.
He said the police also recovered two mobile phones and also a black Pulsar motorcycle numbered DL-5S-7704. “But the police did not mention these things. The original marriage certificates and Aditi's original birth certificate are also with the police,” Dr. Irfan alleged.
When contacted, investigating officer Satish Sharma said he was busy completing the formalities in the case and was not able to speak to either Mudassar or Aditi.
The boy’s father also claimed that they were not informed about the incident at all. “We got to know about the incident from the media. We were never contacted in this connection. And the missing persons’ complaint regarding Aditi was also converted into a case of kidnapping overnight,” he said.
