Uttar Pradesh: Two teenage girls Poonam and Pinky go missing from a Dargah in Jaunpur, family suspects Maulvi’s hand

Poonam (17), daughter of a man named Mahendra accompanied her mother Guddi Devi to a Dargah to offer prayers. Guddi Devi's niece, Pinky (13) also accompanied them to the Maula Baba Mazar in Ahiyapur area under police station Kotwali in Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh.

In a shocking incident, two teenaged Hindu girls, resident of Dalit Basti of Kadhra village in Kerakat Kotwali area of ​​Jaunpur district went missing from a Dargah, an Islamic religious place, on June 27, 2019. The family suspects the involvement of Dargah’s Maulvi behind the incident.


Poonam (17), daughter of a man named Mahendra accompanied her mother Guddi Devi to a Dargah to offer prayers. Guddi Devi’s niece, Pinky (13) also accompanied them to the Maula Baba Mazar in Ahiyapur area under police station Kotwali in Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh.

After offering prayers, both girls suddenly went missing. Despite looking for them extensively in and around the Mazar area, Guddi Devi could not locate them. The mobile phones of these girls were also found to be switched off after they went missing.

Guddi Devi went back home and narrated the incident to her family members who, in turn, intimated Jaunpur police through the Jan Sunvai app.

The Jan Sunvai app is a mobile app launched by the Uttar Pradesh police where citizens can register their grievances and suggestions. This user-friendly interface is linked to Jansunwai (IGRS) portal of Uttar Pradesh government. Every complaint raised through this app gets a unique reference number to track the progress of their complaints.

In a letter to SP Bipin Kumar Misra, the family said raised their suspicion on the Maulvi of Maula Baba Mazar behind the kidnapping of the girls.

Meanwhile, Jaunpur police acknowledged receiving the complaint and informed that a team has been set up to look for the missing girls.

Last month, a self-styled Muslim godman named Azam was caught after allegedly raping a girl repeatedly on the pretext of chasing away evils from her house in Borabanda area of Hyderabad. It was reported that Azam accompanied the family to a Dargah in Bidar district of Karnataka, where he lured the victim and raped her.

In September last year, a case was registered against one Asif Khan “Ashu Maharaj”, who made a fortune cheating people, under section 376 and relevant sections of the POCSO after raping a minor girl.
