Kidnapping of a minor Hindu girl in a village near Agra triggers violence, shops torched

IG A Satish Ganesh and many senior officers arrived at the spot later to bring the situation under control. Keeping the tense situation in mind, extra forces from several local police stations have been deployed in the area.

Another incident of kidnapping of an underage girl has come to light in Uttar Pradesh’s Saimara village in Khandauli area near Agra yesterday. As per reports, a young man named Abid and his two friends Danish and Kaish had abducted a 15-year-old girl yesterday.

Reports say that a 15-year-old girl, a class 9 student, was kidnapped yesterday at around noon. The girl’s parents live in Eta while she was staying at her maternal uncle’s house for studies. The girl’s uncle received a phone call from a youth named Abid in the afternoon. Abid reportedly threatened the uncle that his niece has been abducted by him and warned him against reporting the matter to the police.

Following the phone call, the girl’s uncle reportedly went to the police station to lodge a complaint. Danish and Kaish, two of Abid’s friends who were seen suspiciously roaming around the girl’s house since the last few days, were also suspected to have been involved. Reports say that the police did not file a written complaint and sent the girl’s family back.

As the news of the kidnapping spread, unrest was triggered in the area that has, as per reports, seen such incidents of kidnapping earlier too. A group of villagers went to confront the main accused Abid’s family where they threatened the family and allegedly burned the house. As the unrest spread, it suddenly turned violent in the evening.

About 15 shops in a street were torched by a mob late in the evening. In retaliation, the people from the opposite side also attacked the houses and families of the former community.

Media reports have stated that while shops were being torched, a few policemen, who had come in a UP-100 vehicle and were trying to get reinforcement, stood helpless. Later in the evening, extra forces arrived and the situation was brought under control. Several shops have reportedly been damaged with fire causing even a cylinder blast in a repair shop.

Agra range IG A Satish Ganesh and many senior officers arrived at the spot later to bring the situation under control. Keeping the tense situation in mind, extra forces from several local police stations have been deployed in the area.

A report in Amar Ujala stated that the girl was recovered late in the night when the main accused Abid was trying to escape to Delhi with her. The main accused Abid is also a student in a nearby college.
