Police raids UP Madarsa and rescues 51 girls being held hostage, manager arrested

The UP police on Friday, raided a Madarsa in Lucknow’s Shahadatganj area, where girls were allegedly held hostage and molested by the Madarsa’s manager. A total of 51 girls were rescued by the police during the raid and the manager was also arrested. More than 125 girls are believed to be studying in that Madarsa.

This raid was carried out by the police after a few girls had filed a complaint against the manager named Kari Tayyab Ziya for sexually harassing them.

As per Deepak Kumar, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Lucknow, strict action was taken, soon after the complaint was received and claimed that during the raid, they found that 51 girls were being held hostage there. As per the SSP, the manager used to assault and molest the girl students.

A FIR has been lodged in this regard and West Uttar Pradesh’s Superintendent of Police, Vikas Tripathi has claimed that after an investigation was lodged in this matter, the complaints about the girls being held hostage were validated.

As per local reports, some girl students of this Madarsa named “Khadiztul Kubra Lilbanat”, decided to throw hand written letter and chits from the windows of their rooms on Friday afternoon. In these chits the girl alleged that they were being molested and held hosted, thereby imploring the passersby to help them by notifying the police.

The locals promptly informed the owner of the Madarsa named Syyed Mohammed Jilani Ashraf, and when he reached the spot, it was noticed that the main gate of the Madarsa was locked from the outside, thereby confining the girls. He later escalated the matter with the police.

As per the report, the owner of the Madarsa, when he came to know about the matter, was threatened by the manager to keep away from this matter. Now two cases have been filed against the manager and his associates. One has been filed by the girls alleging assault, harassment and being held hostage. The second case has been filed by the owner of the Madarsa, alleging fraud.

This isn’t the only time madarsas have been in the news for the wrong reasons.

In 2015 it was reported that a Madarsa teacher in Kozhikode, Kerala was arrested over charges of him sexually abusing a minor girl.
