Two brothers, Parvez and Tabrez have been arrested on the charges of kidnapping after they married two Kashmiri sisters soon after the abrogation of Article 370 and brought them back to their home in Supaul, Bihar.
According to the reports, the brothers Mohammed Tabrez, 26 and Mohammed Parwez, 24, hailing from Ramvishnupur village of Supaul worked as carpenters in Ramban in Jammu & Kashmir when they fell in love with the sisters. The brothers married them and later brought back their wives to their home in Bihar.
However, the angry father of the Kashmiri girls filed an FIR accusing the two brothers of kidnapping his daughters. The police from Jammu and Kashmir with the aid of their Bihar counterparts arrested both men for kidnapping the women from Jammu and Kashmir’s Ramban district.
Supaul Deputy Superintendent of Police Vidyasagar said, “A team of Jammu and Kashmir police reached here and arrested them. The accused are saying that the women willingly married them.”
Later, all four of them were produced in a Supaul court where the two sisters recorded their statements before the magistrate. The Kashmiri girls said they were adults and married the two men on their own will without any coercion. The sisters pleaded that they should be allowed to live with their husbands. The court allowed the Kashmir police to take them back on transit remand.
