Mumbai: DNA data lab helps arrest Rehan Qureshi, who confessed to 20 cases of rape against minors

Rehan Qureshi, aged 34, has finally confessed his involvement in sexual offences and raping 20 minor girls in Mumbai since 2010. The police have cracked an 8-year-old case of the accused having brutally raped and murdered two minor girls in Navi Mumbai.

Evidence against him was found after a DNA profiling test was conducted with regard to two juvenile girls in Kurla Nehru Nagar, by the Navi Mumbai Crime Branch.

The police revealed that they had been suspicious about his involvement in several other cases of sexual offences that are still unsolved. According to them, the accused had been luring and abducting minor girls as an imposter, pretending to be the girls’ parents or relatives, taking them to isolated areas and then sexually abusing them.

Deputy Commissioner of Navi Mumbai Crime Branch informed the media that Rehan Qureshi was a salesman and had been a resident of Kurla since 2010, wherein he brutally raped and murdered three girls. After he confessed his crimes, samples of the victims had been sent to Forensic Sciences Laboratory in Kalina for testing, depicting positive matches, on Monday.

Around 18 cases against him have been found, between 2010 and 2018. According to police reports, the rapist frequently fled to Saudi Arabia into hiding after committing these crimes, with short visits to Mumbai to perform these terrifying acts.

The officials further informed that Qureshi had been executing all of these crimes single-handedly. According to them, the DNA tests have finally given them a major breakthrough in solving the case, arresting him and ultimately providing justice to the victims’ family.
